    If you have little to no backyard and are looking for a tiny space in which to grow food (or other plants), this is the book for you. Shawna shares how to utilize the one planting area almost everyone has...the vertical space! I really like how she creatively shares step-by-step how to go from seed to harvest. She covers everything from picking the wall containers (or making it yourself) to planting and caring for the plants. There are many different designs and they are all fabulous. But I was especially drawn to the foodscapes. Shawna was able to plant a full edible garden on a wall (in many different ways) and I think she did a great job teaching the reader how to do it too. Love it

    Not just a how-to, but a why-to. Why grow a vertical garden? To help pollinators, to make the best of small spaces, to grow veggies for yourself and others, to insulate your walls, to purify the air. You name it, Shawna's got you covered--whether you're interested in herbs, aromatherapy, a cocktail garden, or even an aphrodisiac garden. Pretty cool stuff! She gives you plenty of ideas and practical tips. Easy to read, straightforward guidance, pleasing layout. What's not to like?

    Living in a townhouse with very limited space for growing anything, I feel this book has provided me with the information and knowledge to build a living wall. I especially like that Shawna's book is broken brown by "gardens with purpose". I think I see a vegetable balcony garden in my future. Or maybe an aromatherapy garden?

    I have always loved the look of vertical gardens but was convinced that they were too difficult to build and maintain to be practical. This book has helped to change my mind by showing the wide range of possibilities, particularly in terms of planters, and I hope to try my own sometime soon! It includes detailed instructions and plant lists for over 20 vertical garden designs. This is helpful for someone like me who tends to build or clear space for a garden, then just put in whatever plants caught my eye at the nursery, whether they're appropriate or not. By following one of these plans for a garden with a specific purpose (e.g., herbs used in cocktails, plants for pollinators), the vertical garden becomes a project with a useful outcome instead of just one more place for flowers. I live on 30 acres of terrible mountain soil overrun with rabbits, and I intend to try the vertical vegetable garden so I can finally grow food near my house. There is something here for everyone, whether urban or rural, house or apartment.

    I think this book would be a great gift for anyone with an interest in gardens of any age! I plan to give it to an enthusiastic teen gardener I know and to my older aunt who lives in a townhouse and wants to work on smaller projects that are creative.Vertical gardens are trendy right now so my hands-on gardener friends will love the detailed how-to information as well as the photos and the Formula Boxes (with soil tips and plant lists). My dreamy gardener friends who like to be inspired by reading about gardening will like the 20 different types of vertical gardens (from shady to veggies!) in a variety of styles. Don't let the easy-to-read language and style of this book make you think it is simplistic--it is packed full of new factoids to interest all gardeners--not just the space-challenged who might need vertical gardens. I'm in the garden design business and I learned about the primary types of moss used in gardening!I did receive a copy of this book for purposes of this review--but I'm buying several more for gifts! Thank you, Shawna! for another great book for my library!

    I really enjoyed this book. Not only is it feasible for a plant-killer like me, but a truly awesome idea for our new home. The photos were awesome and I can't wait to try and put together an herbal vertical garden. I like that there are so many different ways to actualize the gardens. You can find something for any financial basis, skill basis, and growing zone.The directions are very clear and make sense. They're written in a way that you can totally follow along even if the lingo is foreign to you.

    I was so excited about the prospect of creating vertical gardens. I am a self-taught, beginning gardener and I heard about adding dimension to my small back yard by planting vertically. I read through this beautiful book, cover to cover and can't wait until spring so that I can get started. I love all of the gorgeous photographs and especially like that all of the step-by-step instructions are included.

    Sow many idea's, such little thyme! This book is packed with a ton of solutions for vertical gardening that it will be hard to choose just one. Small space gardeners will love these easy projects and upcycled ideas for creating a living wall for both edible and decorative purposes. Shawna's tips are invaluable and the book is loaded with great instructional photos. Definitely worth adding to your garden library.
