5 Easy DIY Vertical Planters – A Gateway to Gardening

These easy vertical planters are perfect for gardening novices. They are not complicated to make and don’t take up a lot of space, so you have no excuse — but enjoy them with extreme caution. It is so satisfying to pluck a handful of fresh herbs for your cooking, you’ll get hooked. Just a small taste of gardening and soon you’ll plant a container of tomatoes on the patio and before you know it you’ll be renting a community plot. Before you know it, you’ll be making seed bombs in your basement to distribute in the abandoned lot down the street.

Not Just a Housewife

It seems no DIY list is complete these days without a mason jar project, so here it is — mason jar wall planters. I love the look, but there is no drainage so you would have to have a substantial amount of something at the bottom, and perhaps a lot of vermiculite in the soil, and be careful not to overwater. If you find mason jars with holes, let me know. Instructions at Not Just a Housewife

I also really like this variation of the hanging shelf idea. Instead of sitting on solid shelves, they shelves are actually holders that fit the pots perfectly. These would also be very compact if you need to move them. I couldn’t find instructions for this style, but I bet you can figure it out. If you do, tell me in the comments! Credit: Compagnie

    Love the shoe holder planters. I used plastic shoe holders on my kitchen wall and filled them with utensils. I would imagine you could do the same only fill the pockets with soil and then plant herbs which do not require very much water I ‘ll split the royalties with you on that idea :)
