Story Title: String Gardens
Broadcast Date: 22nd September 2012
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane
Lately Trevor has been developing a string garden in his atrium. It's a stunning concept that helps utilise air space – and create envy amongst your friends.
String Garden Tips
- The key elements you will need include hessian, activated coco peat, a mature plant, some lawn seed or sphagnum moss. You'll also require Sisal string and a nylon string for suspending the plant form the air.
- Most importantly, you will need to soak the finished string plant in a garden health treatment to prevent transplant shock.
- What type of plant you use is really only limited by your imagination! Trevor has had success with citrus varieties, orchids and cordylines.
- String gardens can be labour intensive and will need to be taken down once a week and soaked for five minutes in a tub of water. Combining a garden health treatment such as Seasol in this weekly ritual will ensure success.
