We’re all about getting creative here at Wave! What better way to kick off the gardening season than with a DIY project. Grab your gloves, apron and your favorite Wave® flowers and let’s get to it. We’ll be creating a hanging plant wall for your outdoor oasis.
What you’ll need:
1. Hanging fabric shoe organizer
2. Wave Petunias
3. Gardening gloves
4. Soil or potting mix
5. Watering can
Step 1 – Hang your fabric shoe organizer
Find a place to hang your fabric shoe organizer outdoors. Hang it on a fence, gate or a privacy screen in your backyard or patio. Make sure it’s in a place that will get plenty of sunlight.
Step 2 – Choose your Wave Petunias
Wave Petunias come in many shades and hues. Having a variety of colors will look best on your wall for a spot that needs some extra cheer, or try your hand at a color theme for your garden. Depending on the number of slots in your organizer, you’ll want to plant one plant per slot.
Step 3 – Scoop your soil
Take an empty Wave pot and use it to scoop your soil or potting mix. You’ll want to add enough to fill half of each pocket in your organizer.
Step 4 – Plant your petunias
Once you choose your arrangement of blooms in your organizer, plant your petunias in each of the slots and then continue to fill with soil leaving about an inch from the top.
Step 5 – Water, water, water
After all the slots are filled, water your plants thoroughly. Since this is a fabric shoe organizer, you’ll want to water your plants daily, so they don’t dry out. Try adding a slow-release or granular fertilizer to each pocket or schedule a regular liquid fertilizer routine.
Step 6 – Sit back, relax and enjoy
Congratulations, you’ve just made your own hanging plant wall! Whether on a balcony, patio or a lavish backyard oasis, you can add height and color all season long with this Wave DIY project.
