Take your Garden Vertical
Do you want to grow fresh vegetables, herbs, or flowers this year? Are you short on space? The sky is the limit! Grow your garden up! Try your hand at vertical gardening.
Vertical gardening allows you to grow with less square footage. It can be done in any space that gets sufficient light for the flower, vegetable, herb, or fruit you want to grow. There are a number of ways to grow vertically. Many of the ideas that are listed here can be made from recycled materials. Gardening doesn’t have to be expensive. With a little ingenuity, elbow grease, and/or sweat equity, you can have beautiful and healthy food and flowers.
