How To Guide

  1. Using your tape measure & pencil, measure out and mark up where you want your vertical garden unit to go on your wall
  2. Make sure the surfaces are clean, free from grease, grit and grime
  3. Apply Selleys Hold Up to the back of your vertical garden unit in vertical stripes approximately 5cm apart
  4. Firmly press the unit against the wall in the marked out space
  5. Using a spirit level check to ensure your vertical garden unit is level – if not, simply adjust ( Selleys Hold Up is adjustable for up to 15 minutes)
  6. Immediately clean any excess adhesive with white spirits before product cures 
  7. Wait until product is cured (at least 48 hours) before hanging the hooks into the frame (longer cure times will be needed in cold or dry conditions or where both surfaces are non-porous)
  8. Attach troughs to the hooks, fill with potting mix, pot your plants, add water and enjoy your new garden!
