Vertical wall garden in Sydney

Vertical Gardens have really become fashionable in the last few years. They are a fantastic idea for city dwellers who dont have a lot of space but still want a garden. They can be anything from small pots hanging from a wall or they can be huge spaces covering entire buildings. Like I've said in previous blog posts, we at Botanics Florist Sydney are not just Sydney florists but we are horticulturists also. We have over 20 years experience in growing and selling plants commercially for the Australian garden market.

We have developed our own version of the vertical garden which we have made available to anyone who wants such a garden. Each garden is made in individual panels and can be made to specific size. Each panel is attached to the wall individually and watering systems are installed to take care of moisture.

The thing that amazes everyone with our Vertical garden is that it has absolutely no soil and the plants grow in a Geo Tech fabric. It really isnt that remarkable tho, just go out into any forest and take a look up and around. You will be surprised at the number of plants living in the forks of tree branches, clinging to the trunks of trees or growing from cracks in the cliff faces etc, some plants have evolved so that they are perfectly happy in this situation. Orchids are a good example of this, most orchid species do not require soil in order to grow, which obviously makes them a perfect choice when thinking of a vertical garden.

Things to consider before vertical gardening
You first need to consider if the postion of your garden is going to be suitable for vertical gardening. This can include by laws etc if you are living in an apartment.

You then need to consider plant selection. Good plant selection is vital if your vertical garden is going to not only survive but flourish.

Another consideration is maintainance of the garden. Vertical gardens are not low maintanence but they also are not high maintanence either. Approx 1 - 3 hours a week needs to be spent on caring for the garden, although this isnt a lot, it is crucial.
