If you have a horizontally challenged space for gardening, start growing up! Utilize the vertical space you do have to get more from your garden this year.
There are so many varieties of veggies and fruit available today. For instance, peas, beans, melons, cantaloup, tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers all come in either bush or vine. For vertical gardening, look for the vining types.
You can use any type of support for your plants to grow up on. A simple wooden stake, a pretty colored corkscrew stake, a decorative arbor, all will work. Use tomato cages to grow peas and beans! Whatever you can use to grow something in, you can use to grow something on.

If your vine will grow higher than the support, just snip off the end when it grows as tall as you want it to.
Supports work in the garden as well as in pots. I love those brightly colored corkscrew stakes for my pots!
