5.0 out of 5 stars Full of great ideas and helpful information, April 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vertical Vegetables & Fruit: Creative Gardening Techniques for Growing Up in Small Spaces (Paperback)
We've lived in our house for 14 years now, and pretty much used the available yard space in our suburban lot backyard up! Where to put new plants, the veg garden, the squash and melons that send out runners and eat the yard? We tried raspberries and ended up tearing them out, blackberries too. If only I had started with Vertical Vegetable and fruit before trying to grow those plants.

This book offers great information on various techniques to grow up instead of out. Ideas for trellises, teepees, fencing, and how to build them makes this book worthwhile on its own, but then the author gives varieties of plants to grow, where to grow them, zone info, how to train them, etc. We are going to try raspberries again, blackberries, grapes (did you know for best grape production don't improve the ground too much with compost or the rich soil will encourage the grapes to grow more leaves and vine instead of fruit? Me either!), melons, and squash, I can't wait! This book makes me and Jim want to go plant something, now!
