Vertical gardening is a fun, creative way to grow plants. All you need is a blank wall, a bare fence or an area that needs a green and flowering element to pretty it up and turn your bare spaces into gorgeous living walls. Follow the step by step instructions on how to create and customise your vertical garden to suit your own personal environment or need. Why not grow fresh herbs, or display annuals, even perennials, within your vertical garden.
