Vertical Gardens for Birds

February 15, 2011 by

Send out a signal to urban birds so they’ll flock to your balcony for a place to feed within the backdrop of a vertical garden. The Plantenna from Berlin-based company, Rephorm, is a combo bird feeder and plant trellis in the form of a satellite dish that hooks onto your balcony railing. Calling all birds.

Update: Plantena is no longer in production, but visit the Rephorm shop for other balcony garden ideas. They ship worldwide for 69€

    Thumbs down.

    Plant a container with a trellis on the balcony to grow up and attach to an arbor stretched across.

    Well, when life give you lemons, I guess this is better than an empty ugly dish holder. But – – how does one fill the feeder up, clean it, and what about drainage plans for the plant? I wouldn’t want to be living below!

    Just because most plants grow up does not make this a vertical garden.
