1. Vertical Grow Tower for Vegetables
Small vegetable gardens are a challenge, but this PVC tower garden can help you get the most out of your space! Make it from recycled PVC pipe and grow more than a dozen plants in a single square foot.
This simple vertical garden allows you to grow more than a dozen plants in one square foot of space by growing vertically.
I used a salvaged piece of pvc to make the vertical garden tower and filled it with a good quality soil. *Yes, it’s plastic, but it was diverted from the landfill. I encourage you to seek out a source for used PVC — think county maintenance yards, construction sites, and road repair companies.
It can be a bit fiddly to plant each seedling into this PVC tower garden. The idea here is to use cardboard as a temporary method of holding the soil in place while each of the seedlings develop a root system. Without it, the soil will wash away every time you water. That said, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
I found that slightly folding each cardboard square and using it as a sort of funnel made it easy to set the seedling in place. Once the seedling has been pushed back into the hole, you’ll kind of pull and bend the piece of cardboard into place between the seedling and the hole. Just be careful not to smash the seedling as you maneuver it into place.
2. PVC Pipe Mosaic Planters
In this project, almost everything is close to my heart: recycling, mosaic, garden. The objects suggest a special atmosphere, with a detailed design that is filled with caressing summer sunlight.
What you need:
- Mosaic cubes , of which any glass, ceramic or plastic
- Special Shaped Mixed Materials: Broken Ceramics, Tiles, Pebbles, Shells, Snails
- Tile adhesive or mosaic adhesive
- PVC pipe (remnants of construction, sewerage or plumbing will be perfect)
The more different sizes you can pull from the pipe, the better the many tubes of the same size would be too regular. I have written several times about the technique of mosaic making, so now I repeat myself, ITT and ITT find many useful information. Now I want to focus on the final result, the spectacle, and admire it.
3. Vertical Tube Planter
Seeing as this is around the time you should be planting your strawbs I thought it timely to write about this vertical strawberry planter I made a few months back. Instead of writing about it straight away I thought it would be better to test it first so have waited until it was established, yielding fruit and can advise on where I would do things differently.
After I built this, I found a version for sale at a major garden retailer so you can just go and buy one if you can’t be bothered making it but they’re pretty easy to make. Read more
