Homespun Alchemy tm : Create Your Own Vertical Garden

wonders never cease at Terrain...



this reclaimed pine frame serves as an enchanted herb garden cum wall art: the frame above is planted with rosemary...mint...sage...basil...thyme and fennel






the steel and aluminum frame above is planted with heart fern...plumosa fern...scotch moss...club moss





the woolly pockets above are wonderful for planting vegetables and herbs outdoors and...when the weather grows cold...simply bring the woolly pocket indoors and enjoy a year~round herb garden!


~~~~~~



If you're not yet familiar with Terrain at Styers you're in for a treat! Their online catalog practically bulges with inspiration. I confess to have gotten lost in it...far too many times!



The images above are a perfect example of its enchantment...and while you can simplify your wall garden planting by purchasing these cleverly useful frames...I'm sure you...my creative kindred spirits...will be conjuring up your own, homespun variations of similarly styled earthly delights!


If you'd like to see more visit Terrain !

Love and good thoughts to all!



Warmly,


Tracey and Family

I LOVE those vertical gardens. What a very cool idea. I have a hanging planter on the wall because the kitties dig in the plants. I like the idea of an outdoor garden -- the frame is cool :)

Hi Dana! Yes...Terrain has some fantastic ideas that are almost always useful as well as lovely! I am thinking the woolly pocket will be a nice indoor herb garden in winter!

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."
