If you’re looking for ways to increase your growing space, or if you want to add a little beauty to your deck or patio, then you should consider creating a vertical vegetable garden.
A vertical garden is simply a way of growing plants vertically instead of horizontally. This can be done by using structures like trellises, stakes, and obelisks to support vining plants, or by growing plants in hanging baskets or pallets. Vertical gardens are a great way to reduce insect and disease problems, and they can be used to beautify just about any outdoor space!
Vertical Vegetable Garden
A vertical vegetable garden is a great way to boost your growing space, reduce insect and disease problems, and beautify your decks and patios. My veggie plot has used structures like trellises, stakes, and obelisks to support vining tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, gourds, peas, and pole beans.
But you don’t need a large plot of land to enjoy the benefits of vertical gardening. You can also create a vertical garden on your back deck or patio.
With a little creative thinking, you can grow edibles on walls and fences, or create your own vertical space with hanging baskets or pallets. Vertical gardening is a great way to make the most of your gardening space, whether you have a large plot or a small patio. Give it a try!
Growing A Upright Vegetable Garden
While limited spaces of a city life can be frustrating for the urban gardener, growing a vegetable garden is anything but impossible. In fact, with a little planning and imagination, vegetable gardens can be grown anywhere, regardless of space.
For example, vertical gardening is a great way to utilize small spaces. By training vegetables to grow up instead of out, you can easily create a garden in even the most confined areas. Another option is to use containers or raised beds.
These allow you to create a mini-garden that can be placed on a patio or balcony. And finally, don’t forget about community gardens. These are often available in cities and provide a great opportunity to connect with other gardeners while also getting your hands dirty.
Growing upwards can easily produce the same amount of fresh vegetables as you would in a larger garden. Plus, a vertical garden is easy to create. You can build one using shelves, hanging baskets, or trellises.
And, it’s easy to add variety to your vertical garden. Simply plant different vegetables at different heights to create a diverse and stylish garden. So, if you’re looking for a way to get the most out of your gardening space, consider growing a vertical vegetable garden.
