For those who have been itching to have one of those 'living walls' in their garden, I offer up this quick and easy mini living wall.
It's actually just a wire basket planted with a staghorn fern and some succulents but it is living and growing against a wall.
Wire Basket - probably less than 5 bucks a nursery or home improvement store.
A small bag of moss - $ 3.50
Some succulent cuttings ( smooze a friend for cuttings ) and a one gallon size fern.
You could probably put the whole thing together for less than 20 bucks.
I've had this one growing for about 2 years.
The succulents need to be replaced about every 1.5 years , but the fern is always happy and just grows larger and heavier each year.
