Vertical gardening beds make a wonderful use of space.
They add appealing architecture to your garden and creates a fun edible space when you grow food on them.
Our kids loved running through our pole bean tunnel we had many years ago and it was easier to harvest from as the beans were easily accessible.
There are many plants that benefit being grown upwards:
- Small squash
- Vining flowers
- Tomatoes (see lots of tomato trellis designs here)
Here are some great vertical gardening ideas
