I have been inspired and in awe at some of the amazing vertical gardens I have seen on line. I wanted one for my yard and thought I could make a small one. Rummaging around the second hand store I found a wire frame for making wreathes and a bit of plastic netting. In the shed we had dry moss and soil, up the street in a crevice I found some interesting moss, in the garden I had some succulents and a low growing creeper that crept over from next door.

|A paint tray full of Hen's and Chicken's, moss and the creeper.|
|The frame ready for the plants. I started with moss and then soil.|
|This gives you an idea of the size in relation to the paint tray.|
|It sat for a week or so flat, establishing its roots before I hung it.|
|After a couple of months it looks beautiful, I even cut some of the babies off of the large succulent.|
