Living Wall

2 Comments 23 June 2012

Episode 13 of BBC Gardeners World recently featured a living wall of plants which visitors could add their own plants to. The Living Wall feature shows the types of plants suited to growing vertically in a sunny position, a shady spot and those plants perfect for attracting bees and butterflies into a garden.

Inspired by this feature we have put some useful plant lists together on our Pinterest board:

At the end of the show each wall is being dismantled, transported to a local school and re-assembled where each will grow on and fully develop.

    If your interested in creating your own Living Wall The BBC Gardeners World Living Wall was created using Woollypockets. Made out of recycled plastic bottles these Living Wall Planters protect your walls, have a built in water reservoir and allow the roots to breathe.

  2. If you are interested in the Pockets robustness Garden Beet prepared a UK study in 2010 to show the effects on the wall behind the pockets – the study also documents plants used and which ones performed well –
