Living Succulent Picture

Living Succulent Picture - plant decoration which saves place!
There is a ray of hope for all those ‘gardeners’ who live in the centre of a busy city. The trend of urban gardening has been spreading, more and more vertical garden ideas appear on the Net. Starting with some practical planting such as Hanging Garden or Vertical Strawberry Tube Planter I also followed the fashion.

I’ve never had green fingers, I’ve killed so many plants that’s why now I opt for succulents which by chance occurred to be a natural choice for vertical gardens. Cara and Will Meyers, owners of DIG, are vertical garden experts. Their Living Succulent Picture is an outstanding combination of colours and textures and an ideal space saver. And most importantly,it’s not too demanding!

If you have a small flat or terrace but you still want an impressive plant decoration you must gor for this project. You can share the photos of your vertical gardens below.
