MAxIMIzE SPACE, TIME, AND YIELDS

E

veryone wants to grow their own food these days. But not everyone has a spacious plot to grow it on. Vertical Vegetables & Fruit has the solution for space-challenged gardeners: think outside the plot. Above it, actually. Growing up—with trellises, towers, hanging baskets, living walls, and more—is the best way to make the most of limited space, whether it’s a city balcony, an alleyway, or a kitchen window. Master gardener Rhonda Massingham Hart’s unique guide will leave beginners and seasoned gardeners alike excited to try a whole new way to grow.

Vertical VEG GI ES

Higher yields! Vining varieties
often produce larger harvests than their bushy counterparts do.

Tastier veggies! Vertical vegetables
and fruit benefit from more exposure to sunshine, which makes them sweeter.
