Wall mangers are ideal for beautifying any garden space. Outdoor wall mangers bring colour to any space. The right mix of flowers can work to be visually attractive as well as bringing in beneficial insects to your garden or vegetable plots.
The classic wall manger planters dimensions are: H 19 cm (7”) x W 40 cm (16”) x D 19 cm (7”) and are constructed from heavy-duty, black coated wire. It is quick and easy to surface-mount using 2-screws. A coco liner is included to hold your compost, help preserve water and control drainage.
Spare hanging basket liners are available for this wall manger when the liner becomes old or worn out.
The classic wall manger holds roughly 8-litres of compost and is simple to plant up with all your hanging basket plants. Cutting holes in the coco liner allows you to maximise coverage by planting hanging plants in the sides of the manger.
Using readymade soil-perlite mixes or adding perlite to your preferred planting medium provides better water retention. The porous, inert volcanic rock acts to hold water for your plant's roots to access, allowing longer periods between watering.
Wall mangers are versatile. They're great for bringing a splash of colour, they can also extend your growing space for more of your own food.
Wall mangers are great for growing your own nutritious crops in. Homegrown food often tastes much better than mass-grown, imported food. If you grow enough produce to freeze, you can be using your summer surplus all winter and in to the next spring.
Some examples of some of the best fruits and vegetables to grow in hanging baskets, mangers and troughs are:
Intermingling food crops with flowers that attract beneficial insects can help you pollinate and control pests that thrive on your vegetables and fruits. Plants like Lobularia (sweet alyssum) have small white flowers to attract tiny, beneficial wasps that help control garden bugs and pests. Bidens and Diascias are great for attracting bees that will then find your fruits to pollinate.
For anyone looking to grow their own flowers or fruit and veg, starting seeds in propagator sets early in the year can give you a real head start. When the plants are ready for transplanting planting in larger gardens, use a poly tunnel with growhouse shelving or a walk in growhouse. Whatever space you have available, get a jump start on spring and choose from our range of growhouses.
