Planting a Vertical Garden in Confined Places

Using tower pots help a great deal, too. Simply put, they are commercial containers which stack one upon the other and help you to grow plants vertically in a column. You can grow any number of plants that don’t vine, like lettuce, strawberries and peppers. Also, you can conveniently add trellises within the tower pots and create a garden vertically in a confined place. This is also a great opportunity to be creative. You can try to mount tower pots at different heights to create an attractive garden.

Fewer Problems

Having a vertical garden in a confined place means fewer problems, fewer pests and diseases. You will notice a considerable difference in your plants’ health. Try lifting flowers and fruit vines and crops from the ground, and you will notice that pests and diseases are not destructive at all. The ripening of vegetables and fruits will always be clean.

Sword Fern

This is very easy to maintain and to take care of. Also, it grows well and easily on the vertical garden. It is because of this reason that you should have sword fern in your garden. It is quite common in tropical and humid regions; hence it likes to be moist always. Place these plants at the base, so that it will be easy for them to soak as much water as they want.


If you have low light inside your home, then pothos is the best indoor plant available. It doesn’t require much light and it is a vining plant which is easy to maintain. It can be easily made to hang from its resting place, or you can also make it climb. These grow well and prolifically, if they have enough light. They don’t require heavy sunlight, but only a little. They grow rapidly, so it is important to trim them regularly.

Rabbit’s Foot Fern

This is a little plant that sticks out from the base. This plant has furry roots that can establish themselves if you provide adequate soil and water. You can also break them and put them in soil that is most moist and grow more plants. Ferns usually like to be moist always, but this is quite unlike other ferns. It doesn’t like to be wet always, and prefers indirect light.
