Vertical gardens are the perfect way to add a little life and color to your home, or just about any indoor space for that matter! The trick is making sure you have the right tools and knowledge before diving in. I’ll show you how to build a vertical garden from scratch using inexpensive materials like PVC pipe and wood scraps.
The four easy steps to growing vegetables in your own vertical garden

- Watering and caring for your plants
The 4 step process for growing vegetables indoors
You need to have the right environment, time and light in order to grow a vegetable garden.
This blog will show you the 4 step process for growing veggies indoors:
- Light is required for plants to grow, so make sure that your vertical garden gets enough light.
- Watering also helps with growth and productivity of your crops; make sure it’s not too wet or too dry.
- Nutrients are crucial as well; this means making sure your soil has enough nutrients for your plants’ needs!
- The temperature should be somewhere between 20-25 degrees Celsius (68-77 Fahrenheit) during the day and 15-20 degrees Celsius (59-68 Fahrenheit) at night.
The four steps for growing vegetables indoors
- Choose a location for your vertical garden. You’ll obviously want to pick a spot that gets enough sunlight, but it’s also important to consider the height of your ceiling or roof. You don’t want to cut off access to light with a tall plant!
- Prepare the soil by adding compost or fertilizer (you can buy compost at gardening supply stores). This will help fertilize your plants and make sure they have everything they need in order to grow strong and healthy without any issues.
- Plant seeds directly into pots filled with prepared dirt (also known as potting soil) according to package directions on each seed packet; once they’ve grown enough roots, carefully transplant them into their permanent containers so they’re ready for harvest later on down the road when all those little green shoots turn into delicious fruits!
Common, easy to grow vegetables to get started
There are a few common, easy to grow vegetables that you’ll want to include in your vertical garden. These are great for beginners and will help you get started on the right foot.
Peppers (green or red)
Vegetable pruning techniques
If you are growing vegetables in your vertical garden, pruning is an important part of the process. Pruning is a way to remove excess foliage from your plants and give them more room to grow. The following techniques will help you get the best results for your efforts:
- Fruiting vegetables should be pruned no more than once a month.
- Leafy greens can be pruned every two weeks if needed, but try not to go beyond that frequency unless absolutely necessary because leafy greens grow fast and need plenty of room!
- Root crops like carrots should only have their tops removed at harvest time; otherwise they’ll use precious resources digging themselves up again when they start growing again next spring!
The importance of irrigating properly when growing flowers and vegetables
- It is extremely important to water properly.
- Make sure your garden gets enough water.
- Watering schedules can be helpful in the beginning, but you need to monitor your own garden and adjust as needed.
- Be careful not to overwater, or you will kill all of your plants!
