Posted: 14/10/2013 in Green Walls
The green walls are living things and on some occasions, the plants die due to the life of cycle of the plants, diseases, lack of maintenance or wrong plant selection.

If you are on season experiencing die back of plants on your green wall and you are wondering what is the best way to bring the wall back to life. Replacing dead plants with new ones is the best solution. This is fairly straight forward. Depending on the actual system of the green wall you can use only small plants, p9 or p6 pots, bigger size tend to not fit in the planting pockets or slots designed to hold the plants. Not all nurseries sell pots in those sizes and you may need to go to a supplier that specialises in small sizes plants.

When planting the new plants, remove the dead plant from its pocket and carefully slide in the new plant making sure thereís no damage to the roots. Itís recommended to plant the plants with moist soil as it makes the plants easier to handle. Because you are limited to the small pots and in effect to smaller plants you will have to wait for the plant to mature.

If some of the plants on your green wall are dead and the reason for that wasnít lack of maintenance but the wrong plant selection for the location of the green wall, a good option to consider would be to find a more suitable replacement plant for the actual conditions location of the green wall. There are many plants to choose from and an alternative plant can be easily found. In effect the overall design of the green wall may need to be altered but an overall healthy appearance and performance of the wall is definitely most important
