8 Vertical Garden Ideas
It’s the perfect time to start a vertical garden! Vertical gardens are great space savers—not to mention, you can save money by growing your own produce! Before you start your vertical garden, make sure the plants you choose will get enough sunlight in your available space. To help you get started, we’ve pulled together eight products to make your indoor or outdoor vertical garden a success.
Depending on your space, there are different options for vertical gardening. A great outdoor option is using a trellis. Trellising is perfect for growing climbing produce like tomatoes, beans or squash. When planted, these plants will grab on to the trellis and climb upwards.
