I love growing herbs but my kitchen has no window sill which means that wherever I put a plant it’s inevitably in the way and has to be moved, or worse keeps getting knocked over. These so-called sky planters are a brilliant idea that goes solves the problem of a shortage of space either indoors or out.
Designed by Patrick Morris, not only will your plants grown upside down but you also only need to water them once a month, which is another plus point. Hang a few of them over your workspace and you can just reach up and help yourself as the need arises. Fresh herbs at your fingertips. Literally.
