Back in the spring the Master Gardeners presented a class to demonstrate how to recycle an old pallet into a vertical garden.   Here is an update photo.  As was emphasized in the class this was an experiment.  Some plants have done well (the herbs, ornamental pepper, grasses, sedums).  Other plants have either failed or just not done as well as hoped (dianthus, scutellaria, calibrachoa).  Some of the plant failures were due to other plant successes:  growing so big and shading out their neighbors.  The herbs were especially vigorous and needed regular shearing.  Fall into winter plantings are now being considered.
