Spring Greening! How to Make a Portable Perennial Garden

VELCRO® Brand Seed-Pot® Gardening DIY

As spring comes right around the corner, we’re all about going green. But, since most of us live in apartments or small homes, we don’t all have backyards or back patios for getting our garden on. So, we decided to create a portable perennial garden, in a tray you can move to any available window in the house. This would also make for a great housewarming or Mother’s Day present!

You can use potted plants, herbs or start from scratch with seeds.


The first thing to do is put together your VELCRO® Brand Peel Away Pots. Not only are these super convenient, but they promote root health and density. They also make it easy to remove plants from the pots without disturbing the roots and can be used year after year.
