Indoor gardeners do you know which vegetables grow well in container gardens during the winter months?
There are a variety of of Cole Crops, Root Crops, Alums, Greens and Legumes that grown well in colder weather.
This guide is based on sowing your own seeds to grown fresh produce and/or transplanting some types of vegetables to larger vertical gardening containers when planting outdoors.
Living in Ohio, our staff is studying other types of produce that will grow in your home container garden during the winter months. (Our lucky friends in the South need not be as concerned when they start their vertical gardens due to their wonderful weather and sunshine).
Our studies will include produce that has been sowed/planted in the late summer outside, produce that is sowed in late autumn and early winter inside and vegetables that have been started in the dead of winter. Who said that indoor gardening couldn’t be done in the in the winter months of the Northern States. Follow along and share with us your photo’s of your vertical gardening experience, recommendations for vertical gardening and any additional products you would find useful. We would love to add them to our Customer Photo’s and Reviews!!

Hi, I am Bette L. If you’re looking for an expert on gardening, or a Guru on vertical gardening, then I’m NOT the right person.I thought that if I was able to build an affordable Vertical Garden, everyone would be able to do the same.
