Thank you, that was a very cool article. It made me wonder if pomegranates, olives, citrus or the semi-tropical group of figs could be grown like that in the Pacific Northwest...

Great find.

I'm growing Key Limes and other tropical plants in North Florida using a similar approach. South-facing walls are my best friends.

Definitely going to share this article on my blog. Thank you for posting.
