Dear all,

Since this is a "outdoor garden decor ideas" I would like to seek your suggestions/opinions to maximise the HDB corridor space in gardening.

would purchasing planters and hook it onto railings or get bricks and stack up and then place a wooden plank be a good idea?

Appreciate good ideas and where to get it for the best value :D/>

Thanks

Hi,

I think the main concern is the plant group that you are interested in. If you are leaning towards high light requirement plants, then hanging planters is the way to go. If you are going for the lower light requirement plants, the plank rank idea would be more appropriate. After this is settled, then its easier to develope your idea.

cheers,
Ben

Hello Ben,

Means to say, if i am looking for both, then both the rack and the planter are essential? :D/>

The art of gardening is really the art of maximising corridor space through linear arrangement of potted plants.

You might want to get the racks from World Farm! Cheapest that I've seen. Just got mine: $230 for a 5 foot 2 tier rack, IIRC.

You can DIY Vertical Grow Towers for less than $100, which can grow quite a lot of plants plus they look nice along the corridor! Take probably about 4 inches of space and a plug for pump.

I can provide you with the details for a full off-grid solution, which requires a little more skills to build (solar panel, controller, lead acid battery, timer, etc.)
