If you are blessed with a bit of outdoor space – you might like this clever system from Haldane Martin, called Wallflower Urban Garden. The modular system is made up of three different sized planters, creating a hexagonal, fractal pattern that climbs up vertical surfaces. Each of the three sizes of planters has been specifically designed for the differing soil depth requirements. The video below explains more about the system, its inspiration and usage. Enjoy!

Here is an example of taking a good idea and making it even better. Initially the Window table, created by Eero Koivisto for Offecct, had an inserted colored glass feature that served as a stylish way to indicate the storage area. Now Koivisto went further and replaced the glass with an insertion for flowers and plants. The result is refreshing and chic. The timing is right too. Spring is coming, so it might be a good idea to give those planters another optimistic try…
