Vertical garden.


Continuing in the theme of giving old objects new life, I made this vertical vegetable garden out of some Ikea metal brackets that were leftover after we recomissioned the wooden planks for some on-the-wall shelves.

The planters were reclaimed from our local London Freegle group (Freecycle for everywhere else) and then suspended from the metal structure with galvanized steel wire.

It’s a perfect setup for our modest London garden where horizontal space and sunlight can be had only at a premium. So why not go vertical?

Imagine what this will look like in a few months time with tomato vines and courgettes hanging off from the structure? Garden deco and noms? Fantastic! And it was practically free.
