Publisher Comments:

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 Fells 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 authors own vertical methods and showcases beautiful, troublefree perennials, shrubs, vegetables, annuals, and fruit perfect for this new, rewarding way to garden.
