Vertical Garden Plant Species Guide

Vertical Garden has designed a system to grow plants more naturally. Unlike other vertical garden systems, you can grow a huge number of plant varieties.  Now, if it grows in a pot, it can grow in a vertical garden and if you’re thinking of an edible vertical garden, our Vertical Gardens system loves nearly all herbs and vegetables too!

Check out our species guide below for inspiration when creating your new vertical garden! If you have some plants suggestions you think would look good on our list, drop us a line.
