Have you ever thought of gardening on the wall? – It sounds a bit crazy for sure, but this short video by gardeningcentral will show you how to do just that… welcome to the world of Vertical Gardening!



Vertical Gardens or “living walls” are a brilliant way to make the most of every available space for growing plants. It’s ideal for growing herbs – as the presenter, Neville Passmore, suggests – because it means that you can have herbs right next to your kitchen (or even on the inside wall!) – perfect if you have no available ground nearby.

Making a vertical garden requires some basic equipment – it is a simple hydroponic growing system that needs a small pump to circulate nutrient-rich water. The system is very clean and could easily be run by a small solar panel to make the system completely self-contained and off grid. There are similarities with the idea of Forest Gardening, where several layers of planting occupy the same area.

There are some truly massive vertical gardening projects out there! Have a look at this one in London: http://www.rubenshotel.com/about-us/the-living-wall However, if you’re not keen on abseiling to do your garden maintenance it’s best to stay with a small scale project like the one in this video!

Living walls are also beneficial by providing a layer of insulation, which will help to reduce heating or air conditioning costs as well as absorbing noise. They can be installed inside the home or office too, as an eye-catching feature and to enrich a dull environment – you can now create your own living work of art on the wall!

As the natural world is being replaced by man-made structures, the disruptive impact on all of life is plain to see. Gardening can bring us back in touch with nature – it calms the stresses of modern life and allows us to grow plants for food, medicine or flowers. The majority of the world’s people live in towns and cities, where it can be very difficult to find space to grow fresh, healthy ingredients for meals. Vertical gardening could become a very valuable technique to bring better health to millions of people. Allotments are often in demand and not everyone has the luxury of a rooftop garden!

There are more simple techniques to utilise wall space for growing – one of the best I’ve seen is to attach rows of guttering to an outside wall. This method would be simpler to maintain for growing vegetables, salad crops or annual flowers as the plants can be replaced more easily. The materials can often be reclaimed, which will give you that extra satisfaction of doing your bit for the environment!





Okay, here is the video:

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

    Dont run out and do this, do some homework and you’ll find out that if the water gets too warm (over 80)you’ll have all kinds of unwanted growth in the reservoir…research first, this is a great way to grow given the right situation but heat isn’t you friend here…..
