When space is limited, you may need to get creative to make the most of what you have. Since vertical allotments take up a minimal amount of space, this may be an excellent option to allow you to grow the plants you want while still giving you room to relax. You can save money on your small garden using what you already have or can acquire for free. Small plants like lettuce and radishes can be grown in old gutters attached to the wall, while vining plants like cucumbers can be planted in a small container and trained to grow up a trellis made of string.
One big advantage of growing your plants in a vertical allotment is the lack of weeding. Since your garden will be grown in a container, you do not have to worry about grass creeping in. While you may have to pull the occasional weed planted by a bird or squirrel, you won’t have to worry about spending significant time on this otherwise arduous task.
