    Hi everyone

    I am getting involved with a group of students (14 -18 years old) who are looking to create a living wall out of old pallet boards. I have conducted a great deal of research on the internet and have seen garden designs that are both stunning and architecturally magnificent. However well beyond their means and abilities at this stage to create can any of you suggest a good link to do further research and what type of plants do well in a vertical wall?

    Hi Jez,

    I actually met yesterday with a company who specialize in living wall design. They are very scientifically minded and are even looking at developing an aquaponic living wall system! anyhow I will be in touch with them next week and ask for their advice (don’t worry – I will mention limited means and abilities 🙂 )

    Will keep you posted

    Enjoy the site

    Hey Jez,

    Where are you based? Have you seen the living wall that is on the side of The Rubens Hotel in London? It’s quite something to look at!

    Hey Jez,

    What a great sounding project! I’d be fascinated to hear/see more as it develops.

    Best of luck!
