How to create a Mix 'n' Match vertical garden (Garden Up®)
Short on growing space or have a blank outdoor wall that needs prettying up? Creating your very own vertical garden is the way to go! Jack Mix 'n' Match Garden Up® products look great and are designed to make the job super easy.
What will you plant in your pots? Vibrant flowers, cute succulents, or perhaps herbs and other edibles you can use in the kitchen? Whatever you decide, vertical walls are an innovative solution – and will make you look like a green-thumbed pro!
Vertical gardens not only look gorgeous, but they’re also easier to maintain. Plus, they prevent pest and disease problems. Our planter pots come in various shapes and sizes, in charcoal or concrete grey, so you can customise away!
Go on, give it a go!

Your step-by-step guide
Mount your mesh
First, hold your mesh grid up to your chosen wall, check it’s straight using your level and mark the screw holes with a pencil. Then drill the screws into place – easy!
Time to plant
Pop the water-saving insert in the base of each Mix ‘n’ Match planter. Fill with premium quality potting mix – your plants will love it – then add your flowers or edibles. Put extra potting mix on top to keep your plant babies snug.
Finally, fill up a watering can with fertiliser and give them a good soak!
