Gardening : It’s official. Gardening has well and truly grown up into the loftiest apartments and busiest urban spaces. Thing is how do you best indulge in your passion when your garden space leans towards the super small side? Our answer: Try out a vertical gardening hub.

The idea behind a vertical gardening hub is pretty simple. “How do you make a place where you can store garden stuff, plant and grow all in the one place — even if that one place is pretty tiny?” Our solution is to save on floorspace by building up using the walls (and ceiling if you have it) and dividing up the hub into gardening activities.

The first part is making a worktop. This can really be anything but the important thing is that it’s an easy height to stand and work at. We’ve gone for a utility cart that can be moved and positioned easier, and used a table top organizer for smaller things that tend to clutter up. You could try out hanging a dustpan and broom nearby to make cleaning easier or even an old textile on top.

Right by your worktop is your storage space. We find it easiest to group high use things right by the worktop where they are easy to grab and heavier items like pots and soil further down. Boxes are always helpful to group similar things together, and soil is best kept in a container with a lid to keep it moist and protected from spills.

Finally, your walls and ceiling are your best space saving buddies. We like to use a trellis (it could just as easily be chicken wire, a metal grid or made of wood) to make a practical hang space. We’ve used this one to hang tools just above the worktop and hung herbs and plants higher up and from the ceiling.

Good luck with your hub! You might have a small space but there’s nothing stopping it from being a green one!
