Inspired by his visits to tropical rainforests, French scientist and artist Patrick Blanc developed a system for growing plants on walls lined with felt, inventing the first manmade vertical gardens in the 1980s.

Since then, Blanc’s astounding gardens have become world-renowned, and ready-made home vertical growing kits have become easy to find. Though it would be difficult to mimic Blanc’s lavish living wall gardens, you can take inspiration from his genius when designing your own vertical garden.
