If you live in a small home, it can be difficult to find space for a garden. This therefore means that you have to be creative to set a place for your beloved greens—a place which is not only functional and well-suited to your home, but also lovely to look at.

Many homeowners have opted for vertical gardening, which involves growing and displaying your plants vertically instead of horizontally. There are many different, creative ways to create a vertical garden. Here are just some of them.

Put an old shoe organizer to new use

If you don’t have any pots or want to go a different route, why don’t you try recycling your old shoe organizer and turning it into a plant holder? Simply poke a few holes in the pockets, so that whenever you water your plants, there is a way for the water to be drained.

Recycle your plastic bottles

Don’t want to throw out those plastic bottles but don’t know what to do with them either? A great way to put those bottles to use is by turning them into containers for your plants. Cut out a hole on their sides, put the plants inside, then hang them up for a new kind of vertical garden.

Another tip: If plastic bottles are too plain for you, why not use those empty cartons of milk and juice? You can cut out the bottoms of those cartons and turn them into instant plant pots.

Take wall gardening to a whole level

We’ve all seen pots propped up on floating shelves or hung from the ceiling or mounted on the wall, but why not step things up a notch by turning an entire wall into a place for your greens? You'd need special planting containers for this, though. Check out Vertical Green for more info. 

Use a wire grid organizer

Plants have been proven to increase productivity and focus, which makes them perfect pieces to decorate a work area. To do this, you can hang your potted plants on a metal wire organizer (the ones that are used to hang tools) at different levels. You can get this organizer at most hardware stores. 

Put them inside a cabinet

If installing shelves is not an option for you, your old cabinet can be a great place to store your tiny potted friends. Just make sure to still leave the doors open to let your plants breathe, and that they get the care and nutrition they need.

Hang them from the ceiling

A tried and tested way of storing your plants indoors (and even outdoors) is by placing them in pots that you can hang from your wall or ceiling. Don't forget to hang the plants at different levels for added visual interest.
