Vertical Pots? How does that even happen?


Of course, it does! If there are a lot of activities that happen in your balcony spaces here is a pretty cool way of having your lovely garden. Take a strong rope and attach the pots in batches of two or three as manageable and then hang those pots from the wall. Cool yeah?
