There are several methods for gardening vertically. You could use stacking pots like our stack and grow system, make a garden wall of potted plants, use trellises, arches, fences, tripods, hanging baskets, gazebos, and more. You get the idea. Choose plants that like to climb, rather than bush varieties.
