Garden Shelving?

All Andrew's Plants has moved to

You can find this post here on my new site for the full post and to leave comments.

I'm looking at options for an attractive shelf setup I can install on my fence to give me a little more space and so I can use my table again. I absolutely love the setup Julie at We're Going to Need A Bigger Pot has installed. Many older pictures no longer show up but you can catch a glimpse in the last picture in the most recent post. The colour is a fantastic touch as well.

Here's another simpler solution that would be easier for a not-so-handy man (Maybe I could manage something else? I don't really have any tools... makes it hard to try...) like myself.

Have you seen any really great solutions for building upwards? I'd love to see them!

I'm also thinking of a Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata' for a bit of height in a shady corner. Anyone have any experience with them? Most of my reading seems to claim they are not winter hardy in zone 5 but I swear there's one growing at the Toronto Botanical Gardens?


  1. Hey Andrew! You may have to find a few tools to make this vertical garden, but it is so cool...looks pretty easy, and I like her red paint, but natural wood would look good outside too! Check out Evelyn's vertical garden HERE!

  2. Very nice. Gives me a few more ideas to work with, thanks!
