Vertical gardens

Florist Flora Grubb created these vertical succulent gardens, and she sells kits in her San Francisco shop. Seems like a good time for the word "rad."

mariel4985 said...

definitely merits a "rad"! :)

Liz said...

Wow! That is so awesome-- I've never seen anything like it before!

the Neo-Traditionalist said...

RAD!!! Love them. I remember reading about Flora in Domino magazine back in the day. What a talent. XO

Christina said...

Wow so rad! How fun!

Maki said...

Oh my goodness!! This is one of the best way to have greens in a small space - I would totally have something like this! So clever and unique!!!

Turbo said...

I'm a huge fan of this. Have you seen that hotel in the UK, which has an entire exterior wall styled like that?

So cool.

Lillian Chang said...

Very, very rad!! I love this! :)

Nice!! Way better than having big plants in a small apartment. :)

Jocy said...

Very rad.

Kim said...

Definitely rad! My workplace (which is a university) just installed a "living wall" which is a three-storey-high wall full of living plants that help filter the air.

Fantastic! I've been a bit obsessed with living walls ever since I saw the amazing huge one which was installed in London's Anthropology shop. I wonder if it would be that hard to re-create a mini one at home?

Laura PARING DOWN said...

That is really cool (and eco-conscious)!

Cassandra said...

Those are totally rad!

C said...

Unbelievable! Makes me more eager to finally see Anthropologie's plant wall in London!

Sutton said...

obsessed with this concept!

Jujube said...

There is a cafe in Hong Kong got such lovely garden wall as well

katiedid said...

Right after RAD you can say Awesome. Flora Grubb definitely is.

Joanna --- Get out! I didn't go to TASIS, but Franklin, the teeny American college nearby. We always saw the TASIS kids about though and I wish I'd known about it and made my way to Lugano sooner! I have a feeling your brother and I would get along swimmingly. What a neat thing to do. I went to an all-girls Catholic boarding school in California in fact---an entirely different experience I assure you : ) Small world. Hope you had the chance to visit him in Switzerland!

Emily said...

Rad for sure. Makes me excited that we're heading into Springtime.

Lisa said...

So gorgeous. I would love to have one of these hanging somewhere!

Patty said...

How very brilliant Flora Grubb is, that garden is lovely (or rad, which ever) great post!

Kara said...

Im thinking the wall art is very cool!

Alison Fay said...

So pretty! It's really a piece of art isn't it? I wonder if I could manage this or if my brown thumb would prevail......

Aisha K said...

I love this idea. Yay for green things! I may have to start out with a smaller version though. Don't know if I have the space or the money yet for such amazingness. Thanks for posting about this.

Keri said...

Gorgeous! And doable for apartment dwellers like me! Is that her real name?! How fantastic is that!

Melissa Blake said...

I am so glad to be seeing GREEN again!!!

The Year We Got Married said...

YES! YES! YES! Love her designs. She's inspired a lot of the design for my wedding.

Oh, I love vertical gardens! Thanks for sharing!

Christine said...

I've been lusting after a vertical garden for a while now but this one is one of my favorites. A kit would definitely make the whole thing much easier.

Laura Trevey said...

Very cool... How do you keep them from drying out so fast though?

{gypsycab} said...

lovely! been a big fan of flora grubb for years now. a shop called candystore collective in sf has a vertical garden on the outside of their storefront, it looks wild, unexpected and beautiful.

Ana said...

Very rad! My friend recently made a 2 foot x 2 foot version and it looks incredible!

Gracie said...

Oh is that her real name! Brilliant!

Claire Kiefer said...

Just checked this out--interesting! Her shop is not too far from the high school where I teach, and more interestingly, is in the most underserved neighborhood in San Francisco. I'll have to check it out.

Realtor Julie said...

Great idea, how to bring a part of nature into our homes. If you live in a big city and you are for green you should have something like this. Hard to imagine but it can work. This vertical garden is not only a decorative accessory for your house or flat, it put a bit life and freshness into it. It doesn’t need much space and looks amazing. Thank you for this inspiring idea.

Best regards,
Julie

Flora Grubb is the most fabulous nursery/shop. Went there for the first time last year and will most definitely be back as often as possible. I thought this celebration of succulents was genius! And about the only thing I can't seem to kill. Heh.

I've never seen anything like it before!

What a statement! I've seen something similar in an eco-conscious reno to a 120-year old house in Toronto. The owners made a green wall that was larger and deeper (approximately 5ftx3ft) that not only functioned as an air filter that cleaned the air without batteries or a power supply, but also as a visibile remark about their eco-conscious position on home renovation and integration.
