Vertical gardens are popular in countries like Singapore where locals have limited yard or balcony spaces. In addition to the Singapore Garden Festival , this trend is also growing in Australia as seen in many of the flower and garden shows such as the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, Queensland Garden Expo and Australian Garden Show Sydney. While vertical gardens are popular for balconies of smaller inner-city apartments, they are also excellent design features in big backyards. Irregardless of the size of yard or balcony, vertical gardens offer easy access to fresh vegetables, herbs and ornamentals.
