A successful vegetable garden takes a sunny spot, good soil and a little work. But the payoff is delicious!
Choose vegetables that you (and your family) like to eat. Seed packets should provide planting dates and instructions on how deep to plant.
Vegetable garden trellis ideas are a natural addition to a vegetable garden. Growing vegetables vertically helps to economise on the productivity of your plot while also being beneficial to the health and yield of any vine grown plants.
Just as there are vegetable gardens for every size and shape plot, there are vegetable garden trellis ideas for every space and crop.
‘Introducing crops at eye level and above breaks up the lines and makes the space feel much more immersive and welcoming than if everything were placed on the ground,’ says Alex Mitchell, gardening writer and author of Crops in Tight Spots. ‘Every vertical surface is a potential growing area.’
The best trellis are practical, flexible, and make an attractive feature on your plot. They will also help to maximize your growing potential, utilizing every spare inch of space – something that is especially important when it comes to small vegetable gardens.
When choosing the right vegetable garden trellis ideas, style and budget are key considerations. You can easily create an attractive design without spending a lot of money.
