I have a friend whose house is always perfectly decorated, my son says it looks like a magazine and he is right. She has a vertical garden in her living room. It is such a lovely way to have plants indoors without looking like my grandma’s house! Indoor and outdoor vertical gardens are the “in” thing right now for modern home decor – plus they are cleaner and grow more effectively than traditional indoor pots.
My son has a passion for plants, which is remarkable at age 10. He knows the names of plants, how to care for them, everything. He wanted a vertical garden like my friend’s, although she is crafty and made her own. I did a little research and found the Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters. They were also recommend in the a vertical gardening book that I just studied.
I was thrilled to receive the Florafelt Vertical Garden Planters to test out and review for this post. Florafelt makes it easy to have a vertical garden of any size and style for both indoors and out. In fact, our vertical garden even waters itself!
The reason that I stopped having indoor plants when my son was born to avoid emptied pots of dirt on the floor! I’ve missed having the beauty of living plants inside. I don’t like the look of potted plants in my home so a vertical garden was just what I needed for our Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home.
My son and I picked out a few plants at a local garden stand and split them into 2 or 3 sections to fill the garden.
It was remarkably easy to put the garden together. I think it may have taken 15 minutes!
You simply place your plant into the custom root-wrapping felt squares and wrap the felt around that plant and secure it with a rubber band. Next, place your plant into one of the pockets of the vertical garden system. It’s that easy.
Our system has 8 pockets, we were able to move plants in and out of the pockets to create the desired look. My son has such an eye for this sort of thing and this is our result!
Florafelt is the safest way to introduce a vertical garden to your home – you don’t have to worry about it leaking and destroying your walls and floor! Plus, the hand-made planters utilize a recycled material to make PET felt to keep all your plants watered equally. You can even grow organic vegetables and herbs with Florafelt systems because it is pH neutral and non-reactive.
Before I read instructions, I bought a big bag of potting soil for the vertical garden but I didn’t need it. The roots of your plants actually grow right in the felt pockets- providing a very clean growing solution for indoors.
Florafelt has a variety of vertical garden systems – some smaller than ours and some much, much larger. You could create an entire living wall if you’d like! Wouldn’t that be breathtaking?!
We’ve had our Florafelt vertical garden system in place for a couple weeks now and it is thriving.
I really like the irrigation system. We have ours on a timer to water exactly when we want. You can even add liquid fertilizer to the water tank, as needed.
Everything is watered evening and I don’t have to do a thing – except to top off the water tank once a week or so. There is no leaking water or anything either. This is a remarkable system and perfect for both the beginner gardener and expert. You can be as creative as you want, moving plants around and switching them out. It’s very customizable.
I have been very pleased with our Florafelt Vertical Garden System and plan to purchase another for our kitchen – how amazing would fresh herbs and lettuce be on a kitchen wall?!
