Love this summer look as much as we do? Izabela, The Plant Junkie herself (@theplantjunkie on Instagram), came up with this idea when she wanted to introduce fresh flowers to her small patio space without having the table space for a traditional vase. So, she thought, why not use the Wally Eco to show off her gorgeous flowers on the wall? This isn’t the first time she’s had to attach the baskets to a ‘weird spot’, so she knew just how to create her vertical flower garden. Izabela generously shared her methods with us, and we’re here to show you how to make a patio-worthy plant wall on a lattice fence of your very own! This method will also work for patio or balcony railings.
You can use this method outside with fresh flowers, using the bottom of the Eco as a vase to hold water (making sure not to fill above the perforated holes in the front panel), or use vases or mason jars inside the planting basket for ease of replacing water and flowers. Or, you could plant some herbs and have yourself a little patio herb garden. You could even use them as a chilling station for drinks in the summer - just add ice! The possibilities are endless; let your creativity run wild!
