Often, gardeners in urban settings or those with small suburban yards feel the frustration brought on by the inability to grow as many vegetables, flowers or vines as they would like. One way to increase the available gardening space is to utilize trellises, posts, walls, arbors, wire or stacks of just about anything you can imagine to add a vertical element to the garden. Going vertical is no longer restricted to traditional climbing plants such as ivy, grape, honeysuckle, bougainvillea and the like, now methods have been tested that allow large fruiting plants, such as cantaloupes and watermelons to grow skyward as well. For those plants that can’t grow up a trellis or wall themselves, the containers and planters they grow in can be placed on support structures that make the climb for them.
It is our intention to bring you as many pertinent ideas, videos, how-tos, articles, photos and information that give you the ability to increase the growing area of your garden by incorporating insights to using the vertical dimension in your gardening efforts.
