People Are Using Shoe Racks To Create A Vertical Hanging Garden And It’s Genius

Gardeners are now planting seeds in vertical shoe organizers to plant herbs, vegetables, fruits and even flowers.

Plant as you usually would as if you were potting seeds in the ground, but keep in mind to poke three to five holes in each pocket so water can correctly drain on hydration days.
