For people with small gardens, planting food crops that climb can greatly increase yield. This book is a great resource for recommending which types of structures are best for each type of climbing plant. Part I of the book includes information about the why’s and how’s of vertical gardening. Hart includes illustrations of different types of garden structures and helpful tips for how to best assemble these structures.
Vertical Vegetables & Fruit also contains information about container gardening for those who don’t have a yard at all. The library has many books specifically about container gardening that cover that topic in more depth, though.
Part II and Part III of this book cover which varieties of fruits and vegetables are best suited to vertical gardening. She includes specific varieties, their properties and disease resistance, and information about which USDA Hardiness Zones each variety is best suited to.
