Assemble the tray, placing it in the metal frame, and fix the 4mm irrigation tube in place, clicking it into position so the drippers are in the correct location.
Fill the tray with moisture-retentive hanging basket compost, which contains slow-release fertiliser. Firm down, then attach the top panel using cable ties. Water using a can with a rose to settle the compost.
Plant a plug into each module, using a teaspoon to make a hole in the compost. Use a single variety in each tray or plant drifts of varieties in angled 'ribbons' across panels for a more natural effect.
Thoroughly water in the plants using a watering can with a rose. This is the last chance you'll have to water the plants before they're fitted in the vertical position and you switch to the irrigation system.
Attach the brackets supplied with the kit, that will support each tray, to your fence or wall using wood screws or rawl plugs. Then hang your tray from the brackets. Add more trays to fill the vertical space.
Connect the in-built irrigation system from one tray to the next, then attach to the mains water supply.
