A Complete Guide to Vertical Gardening (On A Budget!) | Growing Food Made Simple

So many people dismiss growing vertically in their garden assuming it isn’t worth the cost or effort. Today I’m telling you, from my experience, the many benefits of vertical gardening, how to do it cheaply, and what you can grow!

    Thank you so much for putting so much work into this video. I’ve been looking for ways to make a backyard garden and I rent so it’s hard. I’m trying to find the least invasive way to grow in my situation and I think vertical may be the answer.
    Again, thank you so much for all you do!

    Check your local facebook exchanges and craigslist for gates and fencing material…you can find some bargains. We fenced and cross fenced 200 acres and saved a ton of money. Also the local dial-a-trade and magazines.

    I just subscribed to your channel. All this trellising is very very interesting to me. We’ve got 6 foot dog kennel panels just sitting here. What a great idea to grow my beans and cukes on. But how do you affix them in the ground? Please please someone answer my question. PLEASE
    THANKS 🙏

    I love the cattle panel trellis – I only have one arch and one laid on it's side, but I wish I could get some more. Need a truck though! I suspect transportation is one of the hardest parts of working with cattle panels. You've inspired me though, I have to say… maybe next year I'll see if I can't borrow a truck to go get a bunch more. I'm doing an expansion on the garden so might as well, right? I do agree it is much more beautiful growing things on an arched trellis like that rather than standard "sprawl all over" like you'd have with most gardens.

    This is great. I'm currently working with a 16×8 balcony for my growing as we live in an efficiency apartment, and I've just added some twine horizontally to the balcony rails to help support our tomatoes. I've been thinking about finding ways to save space and this gave me some ideas, thanks.

    Hi, great video! I defiantly want to do this in my garden. My videos are on how to maximize your space and growing in containers for lack of space. I have room for 2 of these arch trellis. My QUESTION: what 3 plants do you recommend to maximize production of such limited space. I hope to hear from you have a blesses day..

    Great video! My local Tractor Supply stores, here in Oklahoma, usually have damaged cattle panels that may be bent some and when they do you can get them for 50% off which makes them about $10 each.
