How To Grow A Vertical Garden

Have you ever tried gardening vertically? Any garden can benefit from having at least a few plants grow vertically for an easier harvest and variety in visual interest. A vertical garden is about training your plants to grow up rather than growing out.

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.

There are many benefits to gardening vertically. You can increase your yield, more easily care for and maintain your garden, and add depth and beauty to your garden. Let’s be honest, harvesting your crop at eye level is more fun.

Happy Gardening!

Hi, I’m Erica Groneman. I am a mom, volunteer, and a gardener. There’s something satisfying about getting my hands dirty and watching things grow. I believe gardening is universal and crosses all boundaries, bringing us all together. I hope we can share in the joy of growing together. Thanks for stopping by!

In your vertical gardening article, you forgot to mention malabar spinach. All varieties grow well vertically and have the additional feature of being very heat tolerant.
