Create a living wall

If you’re got a bare wall in your home, garden or conservatory, then what better way to liven it up than creating your own living wall?

This amazing wall looks super effective, but is surprisingly easy to achieve. It’s created using a series of Woolly Wally Pockets – special pockets made out of recycled plastic that you can use as planters.

The pockets are the perfect size for small plants, such as fragrant herbs, providing ample space for each plant’s root system to breathe. You can put the pockets together to form a large living wall art panel on a wall, or just use a few of them to create a small design.

The Woolly Wally pockets are a great idea! They’re sold by Garden Beet, with prices starting at £29.99.

Grange herb wheel planter: Create a herb garden

Herb garden design and planting ideas

Herb wheel plante

Nothing quite beats using freshly grown herbs in cooking, rather than dried herbs, and they’re relatively easy to grow on your kitchen windowsill or outside in the garden.

If you’re looking to create a feature herb garden, then here’s an easy way to get going – rather than having to dig out a plot yourself, why not buy this wooden hexagonal planter for your herbs?

The herb wheel planter is made from timber and has six roomy compartments suitable for planting a selection of herbs in.

You do need to do a bit of self-assembly to put it together, but once made, you can use it in a corner of your patio, or even as a small raised bed area in a border.

The Grange herb wheel planter measures 1.07 metres wide and costs £49.95 from Garden Chic.

If this herb planter is a bit too big for your garden, then they also have lots of other wooden planters available that would be perfect for herbs, like this Forest Garden Caledonian tiered raised bed or the Forest Garden cascade planter (this would be particularly good if you have limited space).
