Terrain's Long Vertical Garden is a rustic wood-framed box outfitted with fiber felt wall pocket planters made of 100 percent recycled fibers; it measures 24 by 22 by 2 inches and is $178 unplanted (a fully planted Vertical Harvest Garden is available for those living within a 30-mile radius of Glen Mills, PA, for $248).
The result is a salad garden that could thrive on a deck or patio. To plant the rack, the designer started at the bottom row, inserting plants from the rear. She wrapped the backside of each plant with coconut coir fiber, the kind typically used to line hanging baskets, and then packed dirt around the roots. ( Stefano Paltera / For the Times )
When growing a vertical garden instead of just growing plants in felt pockets why not hang an old picture or window frame in front to give it a little added depth. A neutral color to make it soft and subtle. A bright color to add eye movement and pop.
