No garden? No problem – thanks to durable vertical gardens, you can grow herbs and veggies right on your doorstep or patio.

Vertical planters are also ideal for a multitude of plants – either plant a selection of flowers to bring a bit of sunshine to a dull spot or grow a crop of your own salad greens or herbs for your favourite dishes.
