Vertical Planter To Spruce Up Your Limited Space

on Friday, Jun. 17th

It’s quite common that would-be personal farmers are put-off of the idea by the daunting space requirement. That’s where this innovative design from Kate Djupe for a free-standing vertical garden comes in. All you need is some minor carpentry skills, enough room for a shelf on your patio, and a bit of a green thumb to be able to start growing your own food.

According to the planter’s creator, “Lettuces, basil, chives and citronella geraniums have all worked well.” She is in her second year of using this beautiful contraption and seems quite satisfied.
