Vertical gardening lets you grow more in limited space, while often reducing the need for weeding and pest control. This book covers a wide range of ideas for building teepees, trellises, hanging containers, living walls and other vertical structures for growing crop plants, using common materials and repurposed objects.

Much of the book is devoted to seven types of vine-grown vegetables (beans, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and gourds, melons, sweet potatoes) and five perennial fruits (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, kiwis) well suited to vertical gardening methods, with helpful growing tips specific to each.

It even includes a chapter on espalier, the ancient practice of training fruit trees into a single flat plane to boost yield within a small, manageable space.

Softcover, 7 1/2" × 10", 167 pages, 2011.
