The vertical garden

Let me share the picture of the vertical garden that I chanced upon in the pet center. The plants are actually planted on small plastic pots that are arranged in a kind of wall. It is nice to look at but what's on my mind is the difficulty of watering the plants.

I didn't know much about the vertical garden although I had seen it in one avenue last year.

It would certainly save space but I can see a few problems with it.

What problems do you see aside from the difficulty of watering the plants?

@JudyEv there should be an even alignment so the pots would stand upright.

@Alexandoy The pots would need to be on a bit of a slant I think which would mean the soil would also tip out a little.

I saw a photo recently of strawberries grown vertically in France. That is a commercial venture so watering and other maintenance must be well thought of.

You need the holder of the plants which should be steel for durability.

I have seen photos of these and thought what a great idea. You could use a water hose on the plants.

That looks quite fabulous. I think that a good quality pipe would be used to water these plants. Or may be a sprinkler.

I think some of them have the sprinkler on top so the water will just drip down.

A vertical garden can save space but I think you have to think about what plants suit in that garden.

Yeah. I have seen this vertical garden in my village. It occupies less space and looks very beautiful at the same time. As you said, I guess watering is hard. Because each plant wants water in different proportion.

That would be difficult when each plant has a different water requirement. You cannot use a garden hose.

I would guess they're spraying water on to the pots using a hose pipe. That's the easiet way to do.

That's also what I think because using a bucket would take them a long time in watering the plants.

@Miracle_Maya maybe it is the garden hose and no other. The problem is when the water pressure is weak that it cannot reach the upper part, waheehee.

@Alexandoy Not only that, but to reach those pots that are placed so high, a bucket wouldn't a good option.
