A hanging garden is a popular choice for areas that don’t have a lot of space for planting. With proper planning, this type of garden can work on a small patio or along pathways even in an urban setting.
Hanging gardens are great for adding color and texture to your outdoor living area. At the same time, hanging gardens can also be used to improve your privacy. But have you ever thought of planting vegetables, herbs, and other edible plants in your hanging garden? Choosing to plant edible plants ain’t a bad idea. You can save a few bucks by growing some of the vegetables you usually buy.
What kind of edible plants can you plant in your hanging garden?
Cherry tomatoes are one of the more popular hanging gardens. They are easy to grow and don’t need much maintenance. Just pick a few tomatoes whenever you have a hankering for a salad or add them to sauces.
Strawberries are also a popular choice for hanging planters. They grow well on containers so you can plant them on your patio. Strawberries have a shallow root system so they require regular watering.
Lettuce is great for hanging gardens. They thrive on containers since they do not require a lot of space. Make sure to water them often and place them in cooler areas.
This leafy vegetable is easy to grow in hanging containers. It has a deep green color that will liven up your patio. Spinach is very nutritious so planting them is a great option.
Growing a hanging garden is not much different compared to any other type of garden. A hanging garden can improve the ambiance of your living and can even be used to grow food. And just like any other garden, plants will demand some of your attention.
