Hanging baskets are the easiest and most popular type of containers because they can be hung from arches, trees and roof overhangs, but you must be careful as hanging containers dry out easily and can be dangerous in high wind areas. Also, unless they are attached with rope and pulley, they can be difficult to get to for watering.
Good choices for vertical vegetable gardens are peas, melons, pole beans, squash, zucchini, tomato, small melons and any type of small fruit or vegetable which is vine growing, or bush growing if usingcontainers.
A really great way to start is to create a RAISED BED VEGETABLE GARDENING either on the ground or tiered, like bleachers. These can be built against a wall or fence or free-standing. GARDENING POTS can be stacked or set on shelves, hung from supports or even stacked on cinder blocks, rocks or even each other. And all types of vertical gardening methods can be NO DIG GARDENING. There are thousands (maybe millions) of ideas out there!
You can also create a non-structured vertical garden or add to your structured creation by using tall columnar evergreens, such as arborvitae or even columnar apple trees. Ornamental grasses and other upright narrow plants make excellent “breaks” to plants in containers, tiered bleacher type structures and architectural supports. Take a trip to your local landscape retailer or nursery, walk around, dream and talk to someone there.
Also, search vertical garden support type of plant (ie. vertical garden support zucchini) using the Bing Custom Search Box on the right side of this page for ideas on structures. And search Google Images or Bing Images for vertical garden structures and let your imagination soar (vertically)!
