Garden going vertical

Vertical gardening is a trend but is not new. New is that thanks to contemporary knowledge and modern thinking a vertical garden does not limits itself to a creeper agains a wall or a hedge. If you ‘google’ you will find numerous examples all over the globe; from Pakistan Eastwards to Afghanistan. Even veggie gardens creeping up multi-floor apartment buildings.

Our horizontal garden only needs (for the moment) good maintenance and that made us decide to go vertical but than in the traditional way with creepers trailing along a fence. Last Autumn we planted some creepers along the fence and this Spring we experience the first new growth. In a later stage we plan to cover the walls of the house with hanging pots with water wise  colorful green.
