When you're short on space, a vertical garden is ideal for growing herbs, vegetables and even flowers. A large 5 tier vertical garden tower can easily be used to grow a whole range of herbs in the same structure. The way that most of these towers are set up, allows the water to flow from the top tier down to the bottom ones. This makes watering quick and easy.
You can also use these towers to grow a range of leafy green vegetables that have shallow root systems such as lettuce, spinach and kale. And, if you're fond of flowers, you can even have another tower that you use to plant annuals in to give your garden space some color. Or, consider planting edible flowers like nasturtiums in your garden tower.
The good news with these towers is that you can even plant a collection of herbs, vegetables and flowers in the same planter. This is particularly useful if you only have a very small outdoor space like a patio or balcony. To get you started, here's a selection of 5 different vertical garden towers that you might like to try.
My love of gardening started as a teenager. When I was in my 30's, I completed an Associate Diploma in Horticulture. At the same time, I tended a lovely homestead garden and then worked in various nurseries as a propagator.
I've spent the last few years improving & tending many different gardens in all the different places I've lived. I currently live in a seaside town called Grantville in Victoria, Australia with my standard poodle, Marley.
