Vertical Veg gardens allow you to have fresh, organically grown, herbs and veg on your doorstep.
Our panels are made from a geotextile fabric and have a soft felt texture. They are designed to be lightweight but durable, sturdy and tough. We offer a One Year Guarantee on all our products. T’s and C’s are available on request.
Vertical Veg panels are a ready-to-use pocket system which can be easily installed onto most wall surfaces. A few screws or nails, or even cable ties (depending on the wall surface) will see your panel up and ready to fill in a jiffy.
How To Install Our Panels
Our fabric panels require very little DIY to set up and get planting. If you have the kind of wall – such a vibracrete – you can get a couple of ‘S’ hooks (see our shop) and running them through the eyelets at the top of the panel you can just hook them over the top of the wall.
Panels can also be mounted onto a frame first, the frame can then be used to hold the hooks and the hooks then go over the top of the wall. The choice to use a frame or not is up to you. If you wish to move the panel at any stage then having it on a frame does make it much easier.
For mounting panels onto a solid brick wall we recommend first mounting the panels onto a frame. The frame is then attached to the wall using a few mounting anchors and the panel is them joined to the frame. This gives strength and rigidity to the panel and allows a bit of air between it and a solid brick wall.
All our panels come with individual size-based instructions. Please find these Instruction Manual downloads below.
Custom-Made Units To Fit Your Requirements
Because we manufacture the panels, we can also custom-make to your requirements, to fit your space. We can measure your space, make and install frames and panels. For the installation of watering systems and planting up of the panels, we can make arrangements to have it done.

Planting your Pocket Panel
Planting into the pockets is just like planting into a pot. We find using a scoop for the soil very convenient. These can be purchased from our shop or make your own from an empty 300-500ml plastic bottle.
Fill potting medium 2/3 the way up, making sure the pockets are well filled (into the folds). Add usual planting additives like bone meal, and a pinch of fertiliser. (We recommend Talborne Organics).
Plant up your seedlings and top up with potting medium till 1-2cm from the top. If you fill to the top water will just run off. You can also start with seeds or even plant up fairly big plants. Water your plants in carefully.

Your panel can also be emptied and washed and re-used. Please see tutorial video below.
