Having a garden takes little time while the plants are growing, but finding a place to put the garden can be a problem to many people. For people with little space for a garden, they must be creative in envisioning their own specialized garden. There are several ways that great for gardening in small spaces. One example is vertical gardening in small spaces. Trellises, cages, nets, poles and strings allow plants to grow upward. These supports, which increase your yield per square foot, work well for vegetables such as beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons and summer squash or flowers like morning glories. The supports you use will create shade, so keep them on the north edge of the garden or plant shade-loving plants next to trellises, poles and other vertical supports. Plants growing upward may need more frequent watering because they are more exposed, which makes them dry out faster.
