Growing Up: Types of Vertical Vegetable Gardens You Can Try!

vertical gardening methods

 

With so many people living in small spaces, vertical vegetable gardens are becoming all the rage! When you plant a vertical vegetable garden, you are still getting the vegetables you love but in a smaller amount of space. Your garden in this case will grow up vertically, instead of being spread out horizontally. Ideal plants for vertical gardening include tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, beans, squashes, and any other vegetable plants that have vines.

So how do you do this? There are a few ways to plant your own vertical vegetable garden and achieve some great results. Below, you will find some helpful information on how you can plant your own vertical vegetable garden. If you are limited on space or just want to try something different this growing season, take a look at how easy a vertical garden can be.

Types of Vertical Vegetable Gardens You Can Try This Weekend:

1. Trellis garden
You can find trellis in both wood and plastic materials online and at your local home improvement stores. It is rather inexpensive, especially if you opt for a plastic option. They come in a variety of colors and finishes as well. Simply plant your vegetable plant in a large pot or box and insert the trellis. As plants grow you can tie them to the trellis for more support.

2. Lattice garden.
Lattice is a lot like a trellis, but with a lattice you are getting support that is wider. Lattice can be wood or plastic, and is available for just a few dollars at your local home improvement store. You can easily have it cut to fit whatever space you need. When you use lattice, you insert it into your planting box and allow plants to use it as a climbing support.

3. Pallet garden.
Some people have found success hanging a wood pallet on a wall and attaching planting boxes or even bags to it to grow in. If you don’t have a lot of yard or floor space, a pallet garden hung on an outside garage wall works out well. Just hang your pallet, attach your vessel of choice, and plant as normal. Pallets can often be found for free at stores if you just ask! Nothing beats free, does it?

4. Cage garden.
Plant cages come in a variety of sizes and shapes. You typically see them in cone shapes for tomatoes but you can find them in a wide range of sizes allowing them to be used for other plants too. When you use a cage, you simply place it over the young plant and then train the plant to grow up the cage. You can do this by simply twisting any vines onto the cage as they grow. These are budget friendly as well, since they are typically just a few dollars each.

5. Teepee garden.
You can take three long dowel rods and tie them together in a teepee shape to use as support for plants. These are easy to assemble and all of the supplies (dowel rods, wire or rope) cost just a few dollars. Once assembled you can place over young plants and encourage them to grow upwards using the teepee as support.  You can also buy full kits here.

See how easy it is to grow your plants “up?” This season, give vertical gardening a try and see not only how simple it is, but how simple it is to do with limited space!
