Vertical Pallet Gardening

A whole new world is opening up to me…Wow!  Maybe I’m just way behind the times or something… Last December  a  fellow blogger  introduced me to vertical pallet gardens using  succulents.

Isn’t that beautiful?  You can see her post here at My West Coast Garden. I thought these gardens were gorgeous, and I was really intrigued by  the idea of recycling old pallets.

This morning I was checking the weather on the Weather Channel and saw a video about making vertical flower gardens and it dawned on me …why not vertical vegetable gardens???

Where have I been? When I googled this…and looked at images, it looks like everyone is doing it…What a great idea!

So, in case you are a little bit behind the times like me 🙂 …here are some wonderful sites I found…

The video I watched this morning  said to keep the pallet horizontal for about 3 weeks after planting, before you place it vertically. I can imagine it could be a bit scary placing it up right, but obviously it works.

This next picture is an excellent way to save space using pallets…

And here is a great  link at One Hundred Dollars a Month showing exactly how it is done…

What great ideas!!! And there are many, many more… I’m really excited about this…Anyone else interested in trying a vertical pallet garden this year?
