Grow Up! How to Design Vertical Gardens for Tiny Spaces

Love the old pipe recycling as garden. Might try this at home! Vertical garden, urban gardening, vertical gardening, gutter plants, lettuce, edible climbers

Vertical growing allows almost any gardener to find a space for melons. There are many advantages of going vertical with your melon vines. Space is the most obvious. What may have engulfed a 10 to 20 foot wide swath through the garden can be trellised to take up no more than a 3 foot wide "footprint" of garden space.

Lady bugs are a natural pest control. Keep more of them around by filling a 4"x1' long tube with sticks. The lady bugs will make it their home and watch over your garden.

Growing lettuce in a vertical garden. What a great way to recycle old bottles and save space. Keeps the lettuce away from the rabbits, too!

Roughly what I want to do with my system - but I'll replace those PVC elbows with something less bulky, and put more space between pipes to allow for vertical growth.

My Gutter Salad Garden

A gutter garden along the edge of the shady back porch is definitely on the to-do list. This may be the perfect way to grow lettuces, which really don't care for Virginia's hot and dry summers.
