Short on wall space? Don’t fret! You can grow some food by hanging your plants right from the ceiling! Most home improvement or gardening stores stock hanging planters, and these are a great option for growing some larger indoor food plants. I’m also really smitten with this Japanese string garden. You could try it out with herbs instead of ornamentals! Plants that would do well in a hanging planter include:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Hot peppers
- Any sort of herb
- Dark, leafy greens
If you’re feeling really ambitious, you can also grow quite a few plants in an upside-down planter. Sure, we’ve all seen the infomercial for the Upside Down Tomato Planter, but beans, strawberries, and other vines also do well upside down.
