Upside down vegetable garden design. Using hanging flower baskets hung from a fence is how this layout became reality. If you don’t want to do any tilling or digging up your yard, then this upside down garden layout maybe for you.
Growing vegetables upside down has its advantages. There will be zero weeds to pull, no staking up plant growth, small animals won’t be eating your vegetables and also less of those pesky insects to deal with. Locate the hanging baskets so they will receive at least 8 hours of sunlight.
Another advantage is that you can grow plants on the top of the container as well as through the bottom. Take the hanging baskets and cut out 2 – 3 holes in the bottom for the plant to grow out of. Begin with starter plants rather than trying to grow from seeds.
Depending on where you live, you might have to water your plants daily. Adding some mulch to the soil will help retain some moisture. The upside down vegetable garden is the perfect design on an apartment balcony. Best of luck if you decide to try this garden layout.
