Savvy Grow’s Bloomwall Garden Planter is a cracking little self-watering system that comes complete with:
- 4 pots
- A hanging bracket
- Water level indicator
- Portable stand
You can connect multiple planters to create a standalone vertical garden. As opposed to single units. Whisper it quietly, but you can also plant a horizontal garden. But we don’t discuss that kind of nonsense here.
Lettuce Grow’s The Farmstand is a self-watering, self-fertilising vertical planter that makes growing food at home simple and cost efficient. The product uses 95% less water than traditional growing methods and – in a lovely touch – for every 10 bought one is donated.
Ideally suited to an outdoor spot with 6+ hours of direct sunlight, or an indoor spot with our Glow Rings.
- Farmstand, water pump, power cord, grow cups and timer
- Nutrients: Plant food for 130+ plants
- Supplies: pH Testing Kit, pH Down for water health, seedling grow cups, stir stick, scoops, and a cute sticker
The polypropylene material is tough and surprisingly premium feeling. And it comes complete with:
- 5 stackers
- 20 plant pots – locations
- A hanging chain
- And a bottom drip tray
Neat and efficient, the stackable design makes it a real space-saver. And the bulb – 850 lumen and 4000k LED – has an automatic smart timer. So you can set a 16 hour on, 8 hours off day / night simulation without worrying about turning things off.
We use this to grow herbs in our kitchen. But ultimately you can grow anything you like. Providing it fits in the compartments.

Taleco Gear’s Raised Garden Bed is more of your classic vertical planter. Perfect for balconies and urban gardening, Taleco’s tiered planter is superb quality.
The wheels make for perfect all weather gardening. If you want to plant annuals rather than perennials – or plants that are susceptible to harsher weather – just wheel them inside when the going gets tough. Think of them as your elderly relatives.
Wayfair’s Chilton Metal Vertical Garden is a Wayfair classic. It’s at the premium end of the planter spectrum, but with good reason.
The high quality metal is sleek. There are 40 planters and it’s completely rust proof. Because of its size and quality, you can create an entire garden in your living room or balcony.
Paul’s Potato Starter Kit is without doubt the best named vertical planter. But that’s not all we love about it. If you’re looking to break your vegetable growing virginity – and aren’t blessed with a huge amount of space – this potato planter is perfect.
It’s sturdy, grows a huge yield per square metre and is perfect for both root vegetables – potatoes and carrots – and fruits like strawberries.
Shrubs, herbs, root vegetables, some fruits, succulents and annuals and perennials all grow brilliantly in vertical planters.
You can put a vertical planter anywhere. Balconies. Living rooms. Bedrooms. Hung from walls. These vertical structures – when filled with the right plants – can thrive anywhere.
