How to create a Vertical Garden

If you are short of space for growing plants and wish you had more the answer may be to make use of the extra dimension. I mean that you should use a trellis or other support to grow plants vertically. It is amazing just how much extra room you can provide by growing flowers and vegetables in this way. I came across an article on the Garden Lovers Club website which describes seventeen different ideas for a vertical garden.

The creative ideas we’ve gathered for you are just right for any size space. You can have fresh vegetables, flowers, and herbs whether or not you have a large backyard, deck, or you live in a little apartment.
