These climbing wonders are a must-have for any small garden. Utilize vertical space by planting them along the base of a sturdy trellis on the north side of your garden. This way, they won't shade other plants and will produce a lush, upward display.

A classic garden favorite, tomatoes are best when staked and pruned judiciously. This practice keeps them neatly confined to their allotted space, making them ideal for compact gardens.

Bush Type Squashes:

Go for "bush" type squashes, which are much smaller than their long-vining counterparts. While they take up less space, remember that they still require at least 4 square feet of growing room to thrive.
