Green walls in London November 27, 2008

I’ve just been reading the RHS website and in their news section found an article on the first green wall in the UK. The two pictures below have been taken from the RHS website, just as a way to illustrate it…

When I started reading this article I was thing that the wall would just consist of Sedums and similar species that are often found in green roofing, so I was quite surprised when I read that there was Buddleja, Iris and Burberis being used!

It’ll be interesting to see how it develops over  the next few years (I would have thought the Buddleja and Burberis would need pruning!)…
