We were contacted by an author of a popular set of gardening books who is writing another book on vertical gardening.
She is interested in using ATP photos (of course, giving credit to the photographer!) if we have any available.

I've searched around, and I haven't come across a whole lot of examples of vertical gardening.

So- it's time to show off! Show me your vertical gardening! This is potentially a great opportunity for both you and ATP to have a little recognition Big Grin The more unusual, the better!

Hi Trish !

I took this photo today of my Cezanne clematis mixed with blue lobelia and violas. A Gerber Daisy was in the pot in front of this vertical plant. Maybe you can use this photo. Smiling

Honestly, I'm not 100% sure what her criteria is, so she'll just have to let us know! She did say the more unusual, the better! I wish my Malabar spinach were already up and growing!
