    That is great! How do you water and keep your soil inside the tower?

    I love vertical gardens. I've found that if you use, chicken wire for example, you can water it from the bottom and as long as you put enough water in, it soaks it up to wherever you need it. :) Happy gardening :D

    Sorry for the late reply. The photos might not be clear enough to show, but I used a gardening shading net, sewn it up into a sock like tube, placing in between the bamboos, that's where the soil sits. Watering is simply, just from the middle top of the planter and around. This was just a prototype but working very well still, we are harvesting worms from it as well!

    Love it! I've got some large, unused pots and some landscape cloth that could be deployed very similar to what you've got here. Thanks for the inspiration!
