Green Wall, Revisited






In early January, I reported on my green wall project in this post. I had asked for a green wall frame for Christmas and I then embarked on the project of planting it with succulents. Unfortunately, when I hung up the finished project, the plants at the top fell out. I had to allow some time for settling ad rooting. A few days ago, I finally hung up the finished project without mishap. Now I can view the piece from the kitchen window. I'll be curious to see how the plants will fare - the lack of drainage disturbs me, but so far, the plants look happy enough, some of them are even starting to bloom.


I'm looking forward to watching the experiment as it continues. A surprise in the garden every day....

Looking good. Should be fun to see how everything does.

It really caught my eye as I walked past it yesterday - while helping you lug your treasures from the SF Flower and Garden Show!

What a pretty piece of living art! Where did you get the frame? The succulent lovers in my family would love to get this as a gift too.

Yeah, I think you're supposed to leave them horizontal for a couple weeks after planting them or something.

Do you take it down to water it?
