As gardening season approaches, there's an undeniable allure to cultivating your own fresh produce and relishing in the satisfaction of nurturing your own greenery. Whether it's the aroma of fresh herbs, the vibrant colors of blooming flowers, or the prospect of harvesting your own vegetables, the joys of gardening are universally cherished. However, for those dwelling in compact living spaces, cityscapes, or homes without sprawling yards, the dream of tending to a thriving garden might seem out of reach. Fear not, for the solution lies in the innovative world of vertical gardening

What is vertical gardening you ask? It is gardening suited to smaller, nontraditional spaces for the purpose of growing food or providing a decorative look to your home, office, or outdoor space. By planting vertically you can make the most of your limited space. Folks have been using the term “vertical gardening” since 1938 but the actual practice dates back to 3000 BCE! 

Vertical gardening can be done outdoors or indoors and can prove to be a splendid addition to your home’s sunroom, office, or business premises! In fact - depending on the plants used, indoor vertical gardening can help enhance the quality of your environment by filtering and oxygenating the air. Plants like peace lilies, spider plants, and snake plants are renowned for their air-purifying properties, which not only contribute to a healthier indoor atmosphere but also promote a sense of tranquility and well-being.  

All that is required for vertical gardening is a well-lit area!

While you can certainly design and customize your own vertical garden setup, we have found that many of our customers opt for a pre-built kit so as not to forget key items. The beauty of a vertical garden kit is that it comes ready for installation, eliminating the need for extensive pre-planning. 

Each vertical gardening kit contains the following items:

  • 4 - Small pots (4 3/4" width x 5 1/2” depth x 6 1/2” height)

We believe that ¼” tubing is a wonderful selection as long as you do not exceed a continuous run of over 30 feet. Should your gardening ambitions require more extensive coverage (with runs greater than 30’), you can find more information via our Tubing buying guide.
