We have all seen the new craze of vertical planting for a way of creating a living feature wall or just as a space saving idea for the courtyard garden. I was walking the dog to a friend’s house this morning and was reminded how innovative nature is. The vertical garden is nothing new and has been going on in front of our very eyes for thousands of years. It also made me think how amazing a palm tree’s trunk would be if it was filled with bromeliads and other succulents. It could look stunning!
