Lately, I have been obsessed with hanging gardens and have been toying around with the idea of making a large living wall with succulents or going the Woolly Pocket route and doing something really lush and full. We recently expanded our patio space to include a play area for Skye and it has the perfect wall for a hanging garden. My mom surprised me on my birthday with two Woolly Pockets and my father and step mother got me a gift card at a local nursery to get some plants. The Woolly Pocket directions are really easy to follow and they each came with hardware to attach them to the wall. I got a few different kind of ferns and I am really happy with the results.
