CLAIMS

1. A wall component and track system compri sing:

a) a plurality of tracks for secured horizontally against a wall at spaced intervals,

b) a plurality of wall components adapted to be placed between adjacent tracks, each component having upper and lower engagement members to releasably engage with a track above and below a component, said components each having a front face with apertures to receive plants.

2. A system according to claim 1, wherein the upper and lower engagement members include lugs and rotatable fingers which engage with the tracks.

3. A system according to claim 2, wherein the lugs and fingers project adjacent a back face of each wall component.

4. A system according to claim 3, wherein the rotatable fingers can be rotated from the front face of a component.

5. A system according to any preceding claim, wherein the track is T-shaped with a stalk for securement to a wall and arms to be spaced from the wall by the stalk.

6. A system according to claim 5, wherein the fingers and lugs on a wall component engage between the wall and track arms.

7. A system according to claim 5 or 6, wherein the arms form a U-shaped channel to take pipe supports.

8. A system according to claim 7, wherein the pipe supports are clips.

9. A system according to claim 8, wherein the clips have lugs which engage with the U-shaped channel when clip twisted.

10. A system according to any preceding claim further comprising at least one cover plate for placement between rows of wall components to hide irrigation pipes and the space between rows of components.

11. A system according to claim 10, wherein the or each cover plate has a front and rear face, and the rear face supports one or more engagement means to engage over an irrigation pipe to secure the or each cover plate between rows of wall components.

12. A system according to claim 11, wherein the or each engagement means is a clip.

13. A system according to claim 11 or 12, wherein the or each engagement means is positionable at different locations on the rear face.

14. A wall system according to claim 12 or 13, wherein the rear face forms a C-shaped channel to take one or more clips.

15. A wall system according to claim 14, wherein the or each clip has lugs which releasably engage with the C-shaped channel when clip twisted.

16. A wall component and track system comprising:

a) a plurality of tracks for secured horizontally against a wall at spaced intervals,

b) a plurality of wall components adapted to be placed between adjacent tracks, and c) securement means releasably connectable to the track to secure irrigation pipes to the tracks.

17. A system according to claim 16, wherein the tracks form a U-shaped channel to take pipe supports.

18. A system according to claim 17, wherein the pipe supports are clips.

19. A system according to claim 18, wherein the clips have lugs which engage with the U-shaped channel when clip twisted.

20. A system according to claim 16, wherein the tracks are of a type defined in any of claims 1 to 15.

21. A system according to claim 16, wherein the wall components are of a type defined in any of claims 1 to 15.

22. A wall component and track system substantially as hereinbefore described with reference to and as shown in the accompanying drawings.

23. A wall component system forming a wall for growing plants comprising:

a) a plurality of wall components arranged in rows and columns with vertical spacing between rows of components,

b) irrigation pipes in the space between rows of components to irrigate the wall components, and

c) at least one cover plate for placement between rows of wall components to hide the irrigation pipes and the space between rows of components.

24. A wall system according to claim 23, wherein the or each cover plate has a front and rear face, and the rear face supports one or more engagement means to engage over an irrigation pipe to secure the or each cover plate between rows of wall components.

25. A wall system according to claim 24, wherein the or each engagement means is a clip.

26. A wall system according to claim 24 or 25, wherein the or each clip is positionable at different locations on the rear face.

27. A wall system according to claim 26, wherein the rear face forms a C-shaped channel to take one or more clips.

28. A wall system according to claim 27, wherein the or each clip has lugs which releasably engage with the C-shaped channel when clip twisted.

29. A wall system substantially as hereinbefore described with reference to and as shown in Figures 5 and 6 of the accompanying drawings.
