Before you get started choosing the plants for your green facade, here are a few tips:

  • When choosing your plants, take into account the location of your garden and, based on this, choose sun-loving plants or shade-seekers. This is usually indicated on the plant label. The above three settings thrive best in a spot in semi-shade or sun. 
  • Alternate the flowering times of the different plants. That way, you can create an attractive garden all year round. 
  • If you want to take your green space to an even higher level, think about companion planting by making strategic plant choices.
