To plant your mural, cut a horizontal slit along the upper 1/3 of the cell, and insert a plant, seedlings work best; lettuce, herbs, chives etc. We were less succesful with seed. Keep drought resistant varieties towards the top.
Add a soaker hose to the top of the wall and cover with a 1/2"- 1' of compost . Grow, give your friends salad plates and encourage them to start at one end of the wall and pick a salad by the time they reach the other end. If you plant chives, snip the flowers add to vineger to make chive vinegar for your salad. Add more posts and fencing to make a living fence,
and enjoy frustrating the rabbits.
