The wall that grows
The majority of all herbs are easy to care for, but in order for them to thrive, the wall should be placed in a warm and sunny location. The spices we used were lemon balm, chives, rosemary, oregano, sage and lavender.
Good, healthy and fragrant. If the garden area is limited, or if you just want a slightly different arrangement, a multi-level spice wall is both a practical and beautiful solution.
The plants catch the eye and become a green feature on, for example, a wall or a trellis. In addition, it will be easy to cut the leaves and branches needed for cooking.
All that is needed is paint, zinc boxes, a wooden board, double-sided tape and something to paint with.
After wiping the untreated wood board with a dry microfiber cloth, use a roller to paint it with white primer. Paint with a brush into the crevices to cover all the wood.
If the spice wall is made from scratch, the wood should be coated once before it is assembled to avoid untreated cracks when the wood dries.
When the surface is dry, the procedure is repeated with two coats of black brick paint. It gives the wood a matt, slate-like appearance.
To attach the zinc boxes in a simple way, you can use a strong double-sided tape for outdoor use. Two long strips are placed horizontally on the back of the boxes. They are then measured in and pressed onto the wooden board when it is lying down.
The wall is now ready to be hung up and filled with soil and plants.
