Don’t you just love the sight of flowers and food growing upwards?
After sharing with you Five Gorgeous Vertical Gardening Beds last year I wanted to offer you some more vertical gardening inspiration.
Why is vertical gardening so great?
For one it adds beauty and architecture to your garden. By adding height and layers your garden has that extra ‘oomph’ of beauty and function. Because you’re making use of space upwards, you’re also maximizing your garden space and gaining increased yields.
For example, cucumbers grow upwards and trellises are often used to grow cucumbers vertically.
As we’re planning our new homestead, I’m really trying to visualize the future and I love imagining pergolas or archways full of berries, flowers, and wine grapes.
Some vertical gardening means you’re building temporary structures to grow upwards for the season like pole beans tunnels or teepees. Other times vertical gardening is building permanent structures like a metal trellis, pergola or cattle panel archways.
