Plant Ideas


The VertiScape Mini Vertical Garden is an easy-to-use potting mix based kit that is quick to set up and simple to maintain. The kit can be planted vertically for instant results and comes with 12 sections in which to plant out your favourite herbs, lettuce, indoor plants, succulents and much more. The kit has a modern design and can be wall mounted or placed free standing in your kitchen or office space.

For best results we recommend good quality potting mix such as Debco Terracotta & Tub with water saving crystals to store water. Smaller plant varieties will work best and are easier to plant in the kit.

When in doubt choose common, hardy varieties. Below are some basic vertical plant ideas to get you started;
