  1. I guess my hanging 5 gallon bucket planting is considered vertical gardening. I drill about a 1″ hole in the bottom of the bucket, cut an X across the hole for ease of inserting the rootball and fill with potting soil. Drilling extra holes for drainage is a good idea. I have also used cutouts on the side to add cucumbers in the same bucket as my tomatoes.

  2. I’ve grown pumpkins this way and it’s pretty cool as they take up far less space.

    There is a vertical gardening forum over at the gardenweb site.
