Warning, trend alert ahead… Vertical gardening or le mur vegetal has been around for some time but is now surfacing everywhere. From Better Homes and Gardens articles, online how to extravaganzas to the cover of the CB2 catalog that appeared yesterday in my mailbox. And yes, the initial focal point exhibit at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show was a vertical garden. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the ordinary and unusual succulent in addition to the concept of utilizing available space.
