Another kind of vertical garden

“This garden uses discarded wooden pallets to make an “A” frame structure which can stand alone. There are 7 shelves on it and each shelf can hold three containers. Therefore, one “A” frame garden can have 21 containers in a 5’x5′ area. I use three to four discarded grocery bags to make these containers. Apartment dwellers with small spaces can very easily set up a vertical garden like the one described. If you find it worthwhile, please post it on your site.” Job S. Ebenezer
The benefits of container gardening are manifold. Container Gardening at its simplest allows one to create a suitable space to garden in an area that would otherwise not be able to support plant growth. The largest constraint to what can be used as a container is mainly how well whatever the material of the container deals with the prolonged affects of the elements. Keeping that in mind what follows are some of the containers known to be useable so far.
