"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli.

Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"

Vertical Veg Inspires and supports food growing in small spaces. Raises awareness that you don’t need a garden or allotment to grow food: almost any small space with a few hours of sun can become an attractive and nutritious edible garden.
