If you want to add extra greenery to a small yard or balcony, Aldi has the perfect solution, which will even work if you have no garden at all but want to bring the outside indoors.

The latest Special Buy from the bargain supermarket has caught our attention due to its ability to transform any outside space into a thing of wonder: the Wonderwall Vertical Planter Kit.

With it, you can bring the Chelsea Flower Show to your very own back garden - kind of.

Why we rate it

The Wonderwall Vertical Planter Kit is suitable for indoors and outdoors. 

For those who want to create a flower or plant wall, to give their space a little extra "oomph" this is the ideal purchase. 

The kit allows you to build a large living plant wall, which can be installed onto fences, walls, balcony areas, or even inside. 

It is self-watering, easy to install, and can measure up to 2.3m² in height - if you choose to go all out and build the entire kit. 

The kit comes with 32 planters, each of which has three pockets, so you could fit up to 96 plants in it. 

It also includes 64 water filters, 16 wooden battens, which have been treated to withstand the elements, as well as 32 rawl plugs to fit into a wall to keep it erect. 

The only thing not included is the plants.

Whether you are a green-fingered guru, or dabbling in gardening for the first time, fear not, as this set also comes with an installation guide on the box, as well as information on how to use. 

It is a modular design, which means you can add to it if and when you choose, so you can expand your outdoor plant wall as you choose. 

The best part is it is currently on sale, and has been reduced from £199.99 to £149.99. 

While some shoppers have bought the Wonderwall Vertical Planter Kit to hide an eye sore, others have bought it to add even more greenery to their outdoor space. 

We love that it is something you can get the whole family involved in creating.

What the reviews say

The Wonderwall Vertical Planter Kit has received a number of positive reviews from shoppers, here's what they have to say: 

  • "Fitted to standard south facing fence panel, I already had enough plants, I used over 100. Watering is a bit of a learning curve, but all in all an excellent buy."

  • "We purchased this to add some life to a wall in our garden. Install was easy - and everything clicked nicely into place, lining up perfectly. The kit can be adjusted to fit your wall, and we ended up adding a second little wall elsewhere with the spares. Once installed and all planted it looks amazing."

  • "We used this set to hide an ugly wall at the front of our house. It had different colours of bricks, waste pipes and electrical conduit, quite unsightly. I bought wood that was double thickness compared to the battens supplied to ensure everything was covered over. We’re delighted with the result."

  • "Relatively simple to put together. I ordered the large kit and have been able to split it into two living walls. Good results - will look great once finished."
