Are you tight on garden space or do you want to get a little creative? Vertical garden planters are all the rage these days, since most homeowners have limited space in their gardens. Even if you are living in an apartment, you can start your own garden on your balcony with vertical garden planters. These planters are the perfect way to start growing up instead of out, and we are not talking about planting flowers. Just remember as the vegtables and growth bloom deer and other critters will emerge so install a deer fence to protect your harvest. Vertical gardens can be used to plant a wide variety of vegetables so that you and your family can enjoy fresh, organic produce straight from your garden!

There are a few different types of vertical garden planters on the market today but one of my favorite is the rotating garden tower that can shockingly grow up to 50 plants in only 4 square feet of space. This means your can start your own vegetable garden on your balcony even if you are living in the city! Imagine waking up in the morning and picking your own fresh strawberries from your own garden – pure bliss! The rotating garden tower also helps with composting because you can place kitchen scraps inside the tower. Then, the vertical garden tower system will replicate a natural ecosystem allowing plants to access nutrients recycled through the organic composting process. This means that you can use your kitchen scraps to help feed your garden and create more food!

Another great option with the vertical garden tower is that it can be rotated. This means, that if you do not have enough space on your balcony and must place the tower in a corner, you can easily rotate it to access plants in the back. This makes it so much easier to plant, grow, and pick your vegetables!

Vertical garden towers are super easy to assemble, use, and maintain. You can grow anything from flowers, to your favorite herbs and also vegetables. Depending on how much space you have on your balcony, you can easily place multiple vertical garden towers to grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs.

Some of my favorite  foods to grow on the balcony are cherry tomatoes, strawberries, beans, carrots, cucumbers, miniature eggplant, garlic, onions, and peppers (the compact varieties). Whatever you decide to grow, growing it in a vertical garden container is super easy, fun, and makes a wonderful hobby.
