Many people now a days have very little room to grow a garden small spaces or balconies are all the options they seem to have. I read recently about vertical garden in a news article, that explains some of the very innovative ways people have come up with to garden in these small spaces.
Vertical gardens have been commonplace in Europe for years but the trend is just now catching on here and more and more people are finding ways to grow a garden on a wall. There seems to be no end to what you can use to grow your plants in with a vertical garden. Everything from fabric pocket planters to old file cabinets seem to be in order.
Most of the materials discussed are easily obtainable at home improvement centers and hardware stores, and are relatively inexpensive. The surprising thing is that many herbs and vegetables are very well suited for this type of gardening and produce very well. There is a large amount of information that anyone who is thinking about a vertical garden could use to get them on their way.
This information is from an article in the Seattle Times in an article discussing a new book “Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces”
