I attempt to make a vertical garden of my own, with recycled materials

1) recycled bottles as containers, hanging on a wire frame
2) recycled polystyrene as a medium
3) recycled food waste as a medium in the form of worm compost

I still have only philodendron, some snake plant (Kalanchoe) some 'weeds' from the shady parts of my mother's garden, and ivy....but I plant to add some ferns, some bizzy lizzy's, some shade loving pelargoniums, and some other shade plants from Kirstenbosch which are still growing up a little.

Your vertical garden is a great idea to combine recycling and gardening!

Hello Caroline,

I think your idea to use old recycled containers and bottles as well as worm castings that you got from recycled food waste is a fantastic idea and I hope you will have lots of success with it.

Don't worry because you only have a few plants so far. Rome wasn't build in one day either :-) So keep up the good work and maybe you can share it on www.greenidiom.com with us!

Greetings and blessings
