Growing vertically is a great way to get more out of your available garden space. But which supports are best? This helpful infographic provides answers.

Whether you are growing in a limited amount of space, or you are just growing plants that need some extra support, choosing the right supports can make a big difference.

You will need to consider a few factors when choosing supports for your garden plants. Plant size and height, fruit size and weight, and growing habits should all be taken into consideration when choosing support materials and design.

The wrong supports may make it hard to harvest, or difficult to manage your plants once they grow larger, and may even collapse under a heavy crop, leading to damaged plants and produce.

The following infographic provides handy information on which support designs are typically best for which crops, so you won’t have to guess at which supports to choose for your garden:

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
