DIY Hanging Garden Planters

Turn a shoe organizer into a vertical garden.

"This is a brilliant (and thrifty) way to grow a lot of edibles in a small space if you’ve got a sunny, outdoor wall in need of a little green," says Gayla Trail, founder of the popular blog, You Grow Girl, and author of Grow Great Grub. "They're so much nicer looking than those awful, plastic, prefab pocket gardens. The canvas is bound to dry out quickly, so I’d suggest skipping demanding plants like tomatoes and stick with drought-tolerant herbs."
