The recent trend of vertical gardening is becoming increasingly popular as gardeners take their inspiration to new heights of creativity. No longer just on the ground beneath their feet, gardens take shape in a number of unique directions, from repurposing old furniture in planter birdhouses and transforming teapots into thriving miniatures
