Useful tips for Vertical Gardening

Trellis Support

You would need to build a trellis support on which you can mount the pot plants that you are going to plant into. This is a simple process and gets done with a wooden frame and fence-like steel in the middle. You might have to cut steel for the trellis support. Take a look at The Tool Report plasma cutter reviews for more information on the best plasma cutter to purchase. A plasma cutter is ideal for steel cutting and by reading the reviews you will notice that the product is ideal for handheld and CNC usage.

Netting for vertical gardening

Instead of a steel trellis support you can mount a net perhaps made of strong nylon or a strong threading material. This is a method that vertical gardeners usually prefer for inside display. You can easily sashay it on a wall to make a beautiful natural mural.

Match the structures with what you intend to plant

If you are looking at planting veggies you need to decide what you are building before building structures. For examples peas would flourish on string as it has a twirling method of growing. Tomatoes need to be bound to the structure so for this you can use steel or bamboo. The bamboo makes it look more natural though.

Baskets
