Mulbury - Vertical Garden Setup & Care 

Create the perfect outdoor vertical garden wall panel at your home!

Caring for your wooden vertical garden requires attention to several key aspects to ensure its health and longevity. Wooden vertical gardens can be beautiful and practical additions to your home or outdoor space, but they do require regular maintenance.

Included with the Planter -

  • Backing board
  • Drainage Holes
  • Hanging Clip
  • Packed full of enriching soil that your plants will love
  • Sphagnum moss will hold the soil in place
  • A wire mesh will hold everything together until your plants take root and bind it all together. 
  • Recycled timber frame giving you a Sustainable Vertical Garden

You will only need to add the plants to this great planter, and watch it thrive. We recommend succulents 💕🌿 

Ideally, these Vertical Gardens should be placed undercover on a patio or balcony and out of the elements, as today’s harsh element will deteriorate the timber over time. Filtered sunlight is best suited. Doing this will help extend the life of the vertical garden and keep it looking awesome for longer.                         

Here's how to get going:

After unpacking your planter, it is now ready for you to plant.

Use a dibber or some sort of pointed timber or even an old knitting needle.

Make a hole through the chicken wire.

If you want to plant larger plants, you may have to cut the chicken wire, fold back the cut part of the chicken wire, plant your larger plant and fold back chicken wire into place, tightly around the plant roots or base of the plant.

Place seeds, plant or cuttings into the hole and tamper down around the plant tightly.

Plant fully to cover whole area for an instant garden.

After planting, it is best to leave planter flat for about 3 weeks or until the plants have taken root.

To water planter, lay flat on a table or ground.

Water with a small jug, just directly onto the plants.

Try and not get water on the timber frame, as this will cause timber shrinkage and the mitres may open over time.

After the water has drained, hang on wall and admire your handy work.

To re-water, take down from wall, lay flat, water, and once water has drained, hang back up on wall.

This planter is designed to be hung undercover, as the weather today is harsh, and may cause timber movement.
