Now that warmer days are here, my family and I love spending time outside in the evenings. I love that our home has two outdoor spaces to sit, relax and enjoy the view- a front porch and a back patio, both of which have things in common. Pretty nature views, ample seating, and flowers! I just love the look of a pretty container full of blooming flowers, so when I had the opportunity to review Nature Hills Instant Wall Planter, I said yes. Read on to discover this charming wall planter idea for porch or patio.

According to their website, Nature Hills, an online nursery,  was started by two brothers and has grown into a group of real people with over 20 years’ experience offering really good plants. They want to help us grow everything from flowers, to shrubs, to beautiful lawns and offer a vast array of plant and home and garden accessories options on their website. Nature Hills has lots of helpful resources as well, like a garden zone checker and what to plant by state- which is a perfect way to help select a plant gift for somebody living out of state! 

About The Instant Wall Planter:

Nature Hille Instant Wall Planter

I received an 8”X10” wall planter, which was the perfect size for my space and the plants I’d envisioned in it. I wanted something bushy and trailing that could withstand a little heat, so I chose Petunia’s. These planters also come in 5”X7” and 4”X6”, which I think would be perfect for a succulent wall, which I’d love to do later in the summer after I get my succulent starts going. 

How To Grow an Instant Wall Planter Garden:

Pick your plants to fill wall planter

Nature Hills takes all the guess work out of the equation with their kit! You can create your own vertical planter easily in one afternoon with their foolproof kit and instructions. All you need is enough plants and soil to tightly fill the planter and you are good to go! Here are the steps I took and suggest for you for wall planter success.

One: Do a little research on Pinterest for wall planter ideas (and follow me while you there please) or go to Nature Hills and look at their pretty wall planter ideas. Then decide on the right size for your needs and place your order. Remember, you’ll need your plants to fit snuggly.

Two: Go plant shopping! I bought an eight pack of purple Petunia’s, a four pack of coral Petunia’s and a quart of light purple Petunia’s.

Three: When wall planter arrives (Nature Hill ships quickly), open it, and read all the instructions before you start. They are straight forward, but you still want to make sure you have it squared away before you add your plants. Here’s their instructions from their website, so you can see it really is a simple project.

Planting and Application from Nature Hills:

“The large Instant Wall Planter 8x10 comes with a rustic decorative frame and has a finished size of 13 3/16" tall by 11 5/8" wide and 2 3/4" deep. It can be hung on a wall or placed upright on its easel back. You can even lay it flat on a tabletop, where it will become a lovable living focal point!

  • It couldn't be easier to create and maintain a Succulent wall planter! Simply select enough of your favorite young succulents and Cactus soil and follow the instructions to design, pin, and display.
  • Lay your do-it-yourself Instant Wall Planter flat. Next, pop your cute, new plants out of their pot and arrange them to pack the polymer planter box...filling in with extra soil as needed for a nice, tight fit.
  • Once your creation is finished, pin it into place with the included pins to create a root securing grid. Use both the short pins and long pins to snugly secure the plants within the planter box.”

Please note- the plant securing pins are very important, so make sure you've got the long ones going into the right slots like this.

Don't worry if you get a pin going in the wrong way, you can just pull it out and do it again, being mindful of your plants and soil of course. Now you're ready for the fourth and final step in this easy gardening project.

Four: Stand back and marvel at your Instant Wall Planter! The hardest part for me was deciding where to place it. On the patio? On the porch wall? Hanging out on my favorite tree? On an outdoor table for a living centerpiece?

In the end, I went with adding a welcoming bit of charm to my front porch table. It looks great standing up easel style or laying down. Caring for the wall planter is simple as well, you can use the built-in water reservoir at the top by filling it with water and checking soil moisture often. Even a daily misting is perfect for this wall planter.
