Cool find! Living wall indoor/outdoor planters + chalkboard paper

27 Apr

I found this Woolly Pocket planter at ModulaR on Atlantic (super cool new design store–spent way too much) and I’m thinking they might be a “tasteful” option to hang on the fence for communal herb gardens. Also like that they are self-watering, can be used indoor or out, and may last for next year…The mini ones I got cost about 19. but if we liked them I’d reach out to the manufacturers and try to get a discount (they have a school garden plan but I’m not sure we’d qualify)

Also picked up some adhesive chalkboard— thinking we might try it for plant markers (mounted on rocks or other small items)or temporary signs…Not sure exactly what we’d do with it–but I see potential!

    Plastic mini-blinds (window blinds) make great, cheap, plant markers. Sharpies write well on the plastic and the down ends can be cut to a point to make insertion into the ground easier. One blind slat will make multiple plant markers cut in 6 to 8 inch lengths.
