    I've taken up gardening for the first time this year. I started 7 tomato plants in 7 different pots and I was growing them all vertically on a 5 ft tall stake. After a few of them started falling over (more than a few times) I decided to circle them around a big shepherd's hook pot hanger thing and I just tie them to that in a big bush. It's about 6 ft tall at the moment. I'm going to do a similar setup next year but you can bet that I will not be using pots. If I do, I'll make sure they are bigger than the ones I have now. I underestimated the root growth, but I have had loads of small-medium sized tomatoes.

    Man Mountain, have you consider get a bee hive to help your garden and the local bee population?

    (3:11) I always enjoy when it is easy to grab and pop off my cucumber.

    5:32 Excuse my ignorance, but are those small pumpkins edible or just for ornamental purposes?

    I really enjoyed this. Have been very into vertical gardening (initially as an experiment for clients asking how to grow in small spaces) for the past year or so.

    Your herb garden fell over and you used French cleats??? That must have been a pretty big storm, Because I would think they would ensure sturdiness since they're wedged in there. Anyway, great video, and I'm glad you see your garden do so well! :)

    I have an Australian native bee hive in my yard for the sole reason of them being great for pollination. not for honey

    Living in a condo I would love to see how I could get a functional vertical garden on a normal size balcony.

    I love bees in the garden (3:56), reminds me that we are not the only hard workers! :)

    I live in the south where it gets hot. Wire trellises get pretty hot when in direct sunlight. What I use for my tomatoes and cucumbers is netting. Fishing net or soccer goal netting works great and doesn't' get hot at all. Fishing net can be purchased in varying sizes for different crops as well.

    We used butternut squashes to give us the shade we needed on out south-west fasing glased balcony, the vines grew up the the ceiling early by climbing two lines tied together every 30cm or so. The big leaves gave us hte shade we wanted.. And we got butternut squashes!

    I live on the 4th floor. That's what i call vertical gardening!

    Have you ever considered aquaponics? Definitely container gardens and can make excellent use of vertical space! Plus depending on your climate and back yard set up, you can grow all year long! Even colder climates with use of a green house or solar shed.

    dude pls, you look inbred in that hat

    I would add a caveat with regards to encouraging plants to grow as tall as possible. I'm sure this is fine in warm climates but here in Scotland we have to be careful not to let plants grow too tall as they would otherwise spread themselves too thin by growing too many fruit or veg since we have a colder climate. Tomatoes for instance I wouldn't grow more than 2 or 3 levels or they're likely to take too long to grow any decent fruit by spending too much energy growing up and growing new shoots.
