Plant It Yourself: Shoe Organizer Plant Wall
The Wave Crew  Wave Petunias | Cool Wave Pansies

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.

If you enjoyed this step-by-step project let us know. Even better, please share your photos of your colorful shoe organizer plant wall with us in the Comments section. We’d love to hear from our Wave community!
