This spring we started gardening with a vertical garden and have enjoyed the fresh herbs and produce. Here’s a guide to set up your own vertical garden and tips for successfully growing produce.
What to Plant
In our garden, we are growing tomatoes, peppers, green onions, chives, thyme, mint, basil, and strawberries. Check what grows best in your climate depending on the season before planting seeds. Urban Farmer is a great resource for learning about farming and understanding the best planting schedule based on your climate.
How to Start Your Garden
If you’re looking for a starting point I found a lot of great options online to get a vertical garden started:

How to Keep the Garden Alive
The success of my garden is due to the drip water irrigation system. I installed an irrigation system that is on a timer which made all the difference in keeping the garden alive. You can easily order an irrigation system from Amazon like the one pictured below, here. Also, I put the irrigation system on a timer with a faucet timer which helped tremendously.
