This is so clever and a huge solution for many of us. It would have never entered my mind to do this. I initially saw this concept on Pinterest. I love this idea.
When I started to have slug and other ground bug issues, I decided the only solution was to build a hanging garden.
If you want to do a little at-home gardening but don’t have much space to do your planting, a simple gutter garden might be the perfect option for you.
In Alaska they use this simple idea for planting a small vegetable garden with very little space…a window box garden built from gutters. It solves many problems for them. Since the soil is cold and has very little organic matter and there are lots of big trees shading it, plus they have slugs and root maggots, along with all kinds of animals wondering around.
Even if your garden doesn’t face the same problems, the idea behind the gutter garden could be perfect if you’re low on space but would kill for some homegrown veggies.
Come the spring, this is a fabulous idea for planting flowers in and it’s simply beautiful with the mix of colors.
In the meanwhile, this is a great way to save space and store your smaller plants, for the winter months, by hanging this in your garage under plant lights.
