No space for plants? Turn a wall into a vertical garden

Many people now a days have very little room to grow a garden small spaces or balconies are all the options they seem to have. I read recently about vertical garden in a news article, that explains some of the very innovative ways people have come up with to garden in these small spaces.

Vertical gardens have been commonplace in Europe for years but the trend is just now catching on here and more and more people are finding ways to grow a garden on a wall. There seems to be no end to what you can use to grow your plants in with a vertical garden. Everything from fabric pocket planters to old file cabinets seem to be in order.
