Mini vertical gardens are easy to set up and make perfect gifts. They also don’t take up a lot of space.
These planters are ideal for indoor use, whether for planting decorative succulents, easy-to-maintain cactus or functional herb gardens.
The Mini Vertical Garden Makes Gift-Giving Easy
They look cool no matter where to you put them: office or home. If you need to find a unique holiday gift for that “hard-to-shop-for” person or business associate, I’ve got some ideas for you!
Keep in mind that the following vertical garden kits don’t come with plants, so you’ll need to get your own. However, this is a great way to make your gifts distinctive and individual to the gift recipient. (I’ve included links below to make shopping easy).
First is Sommerland’s cylinder planter that is designed for low-water, slow-growing succulents and cactus. Although it is “vertical”, you don’t need a wall for this one. It’s perfect for a desk in an office, where it can be enjoyed but won’t take up much space.
Succulents and cactus also require minimal maintenance. Therefore, the person receiving your gift won’t have to do much to keep the plant alive and thriving. Need succulents? Click here for succulent cuttings, ready to plant!
Dimensions: 14.2″ tall x 10.3″ wide x 2.2″ deep
2. The 3-Pot Indoor Wall Planter can be used for growing many types of houseplants, but it is very functional as an herb garden.
There are a few features that I think make this vertical garden kit really cool:
1. You can write directly on the surface of the back panel with chalk (chalk is included with kit). This makes the planter extra special and customized.
2. The 3 galvanized steel pots have removable plastic liners inside, so it makes planting and re-planting a cinch. By the way, you can get organic herb seeds here.
3. This is a planter that actually looks good in multiples. You can get as many units as you want, depending on the size of the garden or how much money you want to spend.
Dimensions: 24″ tall x 6″ wide x 5″ deep
Finally, the Vertibloom modular planter system is a simple, customizable vertical garden that can expand depending the number of modules used.
It’s also kid-proof, so it makes a fun gift for kids getting started with gardening.
This mini vertical garden kit would be great for cactus or succulents, plus other indoor plants such as spider plants, pothos or English ivy.
The kit includes all of the mounting brackets and screws needed to hang the planter. Each bucket also has a removable drain tray.
In addition to the features that I mentioned above, all of these mini vertical gardens are “drip-proof”. They won’t leak water all over your desk or wall (unless you water the containers to overflow). =)
