Over the years I’ve lived in a lot of different sized homes, but no matter where I’ve lived, it seems I’ve always managed to grow at least some sort of a garden.
I’ve always enjoyed having a garden, and not just because it’s fun to dig around in the dirt, but because it’s also visually appealing and allows me to always have fresh herbs on hand to snip off for cooking. Or if I want to have something fresh to put in a vase for my home, I can pluck off a sprig of fresh lavender to put in a bud vase.
So if you live in a small space, with limited room for a garden, consider the idea of vertical gardening and check out these 3 clever space saving gardening accessories and ideas to help get you started.
Check out the clever hydroponic design behind this amazing vertically designed Tower Garden that my girlfriend, Donna, discovered while attending a Home Show and was kind enough to share with me. The image on the left is the one she took right after they delivered and set hers up on her rooftop deck. And the image on the right shows what it can look like afterwards. This plant tower has been specifically designed to grow plants utlitlzing the principles of hydroponic gardening,which employ growing plants in nutrients, rather than soils. So don’t be discouraged if you only have a small space for creating a garden. If you take advantage of some of these vertical gardening innovations, the possiblities for what you can grow are almost limitless.
