Vertical Gardening Ideas: Tube Planters - Gardening Gone Wild

I was transformed into a lover and student of vertical gardening after seeing Patrick Blanc’s vertical wall designs years ago in a magazine. I’ve written about vertical gardening on GGW over the past few years. Since then, the field has continued to grow at a quick pace. The horticultural industry is focusing more and more on green roofs and vertical gardening, realizing that these two forms of gardening are not only environmentally beneficial but can help expand peoples’ horizons of how to create a garden when dealing with an unconventional space. In he 1980s, Pat McWhinney noticed that many rock and waterfall type projects were lacking plant life around the rock formations. Consequently, he created a unique plant system called Tube Planters. Tube planters are made of an industrial cloth: Patrick has them sown up by a seamstress into circular tubes and lengths of varying dimensions. Five tube planters secured to a latticed screen, ready to be planted.

The 72 Plant Vertical Garden This instructable will cover the details of the Vertical Garden built for my "Hydroponic, Automated, Networking, Climate Controlled Greenhouse Project". The vertical garden is a space saving way to grow up to 72 small plants (such as lettuce, spinach, strawberries and lots of different herbs) all with the plant health benefits of hydroponics. The Vertical Garden is designed with modularity in mind, to be brought into the greenhouse and installed as a single unit, with only connection to the existing plumbing required before you're ready to grow. The installation of additional Vertical Garden units should be quick and easy. Mushroom Garden Patches by Terri Marie Beauséjour Copyright 1999, all rights reserved.

Vertical farming Vertical farming is cultivating plant or animal life within a skyscraper greenhouse or on vertically inclined surfaces. The modern idea of vertical farming uses techniques similar to glass houses, where natural sunlight can be augmented with artificial lighting.[1] Types[edit] Grow 53 Plants In 4 Sq Ft With A DIY Vertical Garden Tower Print this Post For anyone that is thinking about having a garden tower, John from Growing Your Greens made this great video to show us how to make the potting soil that you need to fill the tower with. He adds so many things that will make what ever is grown in the tower super nutritious. He adds multiple rock dusts so that the plants can get loads of vitamins and minerals as well as compost and other things. Its a long video but it shows how light and airy the soil should be and he shows how to plant it as he fills it. Growing Your Greens

All-In-One Garden Centre Download PDF: Fruit Trees Page 1-2 (960KB) ApplesBramley Seedling will not pollinate any other tree so three apple varieties are required to achieve fruit on all three trees (see diagram below). A few apples are self-fertile, capable of setting some fruit with their own pollen - examples include James Grieve and Arthur Turner. In practically all cases, however, it is necessary to have a pollination partner nearby - another variety which flowers at approximately the same time, enabling cross- pollination to take place. Apples are classified into 4 flowering groups.A pollination partner is a variety which is ideally in the same group or else in the one immediately above or just below the group which includes the Apple in question.

Then there are crops, such as tomatoes, that need some type of support to keep them above damp ground, where diseases have a heyday.

Hanging Basket Garden We have a sweet little backyard at our new house but with a rambunctious puppy and a curious two-year-old, many of my efforts to plant things in the ground have been thwarted. Well, more like dug up, chewed up, and pulled apart. I was determined to have some sort of herb garden so I got smart and came up with my own version of a vertical garden. I used supplies I already had on hand and bought herbs and flowers that would take the same amount of sun.
