Hi! I’m planning on making a wall garden. Here is one website that makes them. They use felt that is made out of recycled plastic bottles stapled to a hard plastic back. While they say it is fine, I’m not fully comfortable with the idea that the plants (especially ones that I’m going to eat) are growing in plastic. What are some alternative construction materials? I’ve considered regular felt and burlap somehow attached to a metal backing. Has anyone tried wall gardening before? Thanks!
Yes, using pallets is a great idea! Though, I want to make something that can be easily hung on an indoor wall. I scrapped the burlap idea because I read it might fall apart easily over time and I haven’t yet tried regular felt, because the store closest to me doesn’t carry wool felt, it was all plastic. So I’m thinking of using coconut hair pot lining stuff.
