A vertical garden can run the gamut from a simple arrangement of flowers in a large container on a deck to an elaborate display of strawberries and geraniums amid climbing peas and vines of small squash growing up a backyard fence. Any upright structure that can support vegetables, fruits, herbs, or flowers, whether these plants are in containers or in the ground, can be used in vertical gardening. Although vertical gardening is of particular interest to apartment dwellers and to city residents with limited yard space, it's also used by suburban and rural gardeners to grow vining plants up supports, so valuable space can be freed up for root crops. Gardening expert Jason Johns offers examples of many types of vertical gardens and gives suggestions for the most appropriate plants to grow vertically. He also gives tips for how to plan a vertical garden to take advantage of sunlight, allow for easy watering and care, and provide protection from wind and insect damage. Included are many photographs illustrating innovative and creative vertical gardening containers and arrangements.

The biggest mistake gardeners make each season is starting out too big and then quickly realizing their large plot requires too much weeding, watering, and backbreaking labor. Vertical gardening guarantees a better outcome from the day the trowel hits the soil—by shrinking the amount of "floor" space needed and focusing on climbing plants that are less prone to insects, diseases, and animal pests. Notable author and gardener Derek Fell has tried and tested thousands of varieties of vegetables, flowers, and fruits and recommends the best plants for space-saving vertical gardening. His grow-up, grow-down system also shows which ground-level plants make good companions underneath and alongside climbing plants. Best of all, many of Fell's greatest climbers and mutually beneficial plants are available in seed packets in every local garden center. With a mix of DIY and commercially available string supports, trellises, pergolas, raised beds, skyscraper gardens, and topsy-turvy planters, the vertical garden system reduces work, increases yields, makes harvesting easier, and can be practiced in spaces as small as a container or a one-by-four-foot strip. Vertical Gardening features 100 color photos of the author's own vertical methods and showcases beautiful, troublefree perennials, shrubs, vegetables, annuals, and fruit perfect for this new, rewarding way to garden.

Vertical gardening is the process of gardening that is done vertically or upward. While the traditional gardening process is gardening with plots on the ground, vertical gardening is a different approach to gardening as it aims to plant crops in a vertical position or standing position. This can either be done through hanging plots or with frameworks as long as plants are not planted on the ground like in traditional gardening. There are several advantages of vertical gardening. One, vertical gardening is a great space saver. Since your garden is positioned vertically, it does not take up too much space in your backyard, giving room to more plants to be planted. Two, vertical gardening is a very flexible type of gardening because it allows you to plant or to build a garden even in an area with limited space. For instance, if you are only gardening on your rooftop or you only a have a very small backyard, it is possible for you to plant many crops through vertical gardening even with that limited space you have. If you want to build a vertical garden, there are several things you need to be aware of. First, you need to how to know how to build one, you need to know how to prepare the soil for a vertical garden, you need to know how to maintain your vertical garden, and you need to know how to control pests and keep them from destroying your plants. This way, the time, money and effort you invested in building this garden won't be in vain. This book will discuss and reveal some of these helpful vertical gardening tips you need.

Table of Contents Introduction Benefits of Green Walls Different Paneling Structures Loose Medium Coir Mat/Felt Mat Medium Polyurethane Sheet Medium Structural Mediums Hanging Containers Shoe Holder Racks How to Make a Trellis Using Moss and Coco fiber Best Plant Choices Self Watering Planters How to Make a Self Watering Planter – Subirrigation Planter Water Circulation in Green Walls Final Tips for Green Wall Planting Hydroponics Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction How many times have you gone into a neighbor’s garden and admired one of his walls, completely or even partially covered with lots and lots of greenery? Or you may have gone to a place to see some old buildings and their harsh, bleak and stony exterior may have been softened with lots of ivy. This book is going to tell you all about vertical gardening, where you are going to be using a wall as a support. A green wall is always going to need a way in which you can water the plants so that you have living green walls. These vertical gardens are going to be the focus of everybody’s envy. The next time they come visiting your home, just point them out to that green growth covering the sides of your stone or brick pride and joy. So what is the difference between a green wall and a green façade? A green façade is going to be many plants planted at the base of the wall, and covering the wall up with the help of a trellis or any other sort of support, like ropes. The plants are going to be rooted in this soil, which may be on the ground, or maybe in containers. Metal and wire supports, especially for climbing plants can provide creepers with a firm hold. But a complete green wall is going to have a number of necessary growing mediums like soil, which are placed on the wall’s face. So you can have these containers either hanging at intervals off the green wall, or have your plants growing from niches and cracks in the wall, – this is how plants grow naturally in the wilderness, especially when they are looking for any sort of space from which to grow, especially on stone walls. You can have a green wall inside your house or outside it, depending on the weather. You can either attach it to a solid wall, or you can have it, freestanding all alone on its own. In ancient times, it is said that one of the seven greater ancient wonders of the World, the Hanging Gardens of Nineveh – absolutely not Babylon, such a site never existed at all – were made of a number of plants hanging down walls in different stages on a pyramid like ziggurat structure. As this was totally plain and desert area, one would wonder where the water came from to water all those plants? According to historians, water systems brought water down from the mountains and channels were cut into rows, so the water could go straight into the plant beds. I would not be surprised if a number of these plants were grown in water, as in modern-day hydroponics. Because what goes around comes around, and I am certain that the gardeners would have looked at other mediums in which they could plant plants, apart from soil. We are so used to seeing flowerbeds, spreading all over the land, horizontally, that we have not bothered much about vertical gardening. That is because instinctively our minds are set to just one way of gardening, since childhood. Make a hole in the ground, place the plant in it, stamp the soil down until the plant is firm, moisturize the soil, and then keep caring for your plant until you get an excellent harvest.
