Outside In

.

The Home section in this morning's New York Times (what would we do without the Times?) had a fantastic article about indoor wall gardens. Strath and I used to talk about how great it would be to have a wall of plants in the living room but we could never figure out how you would ever make it work.

Apparently there's an Ontario-based company, ELT, that sells kits to do this; prices for a one-square-foot panel start at around $40. I won't even begin to explain the many reasons why we need to make this happen in our apartment.

Hi Emily, my office installed a living wall, but most of the plants died after a few months. The water ran to the bottom of the wall, so all of the plants on the upper and middle sections died. The following looks like it could potentially work since the wall is comprised of smaller felt pockets: http://woollypocket.com/. -Lena

That is really cool. We stayed at The Modera in Portland, which has an outdoor wall garden. It's pretty cool http://hotelmodera.com/Hotel-Modera-Video-Tour.aspx

I was trying to figure out a way to get it to work in our yard...
