There are plenty of ways to garden in a small space: grow in containers, choose compact varieties, and grow up with trellises and obelisks. Let's not neglect the most obvious vertical space - walls! Below are a few options that we are offering at BGC this year:
Plant in a pocket (above left). Woolly Pockets are made of recycled materials, can be used indoors and outdoors. They are great for herbs, salad greens, strawberries, and annuals.
The framed succulents are planted in a self-contained watering system from Bright Green designed for indoor use as well as outdoors. Available in stained walnut or paintable frame.
The planter with colorful annuals is a Pamela Crawford Vertical Garden. Easy to mount and easy to plant. It works well with annuals and herbs.
This vertical garden from Gronomics is a true space saver. It's made from rot-resistant cedar and comes with a drip-irrigation system. We planted it with salad greens, herbs, pansies, and even tomatoes! The photo on the right was taken one month after planting. It's time to harvest!
All of the vertical garden systems are easily mounted on a wall. An old door would work well, too.

Usually all the common cedar planter boxes are mounted to the garden ground/ floors. This Gro Product has long feet and it has a two-staired function. One is for planting and the bottom shelf is for any garden purpose. You can keep garden tool bags, gloves, and other plant pots as well. So, a multifunctional cedar planter box.

It captured me the most when you mentioned that a vertical garden can be a true space saver. My friend wants to create her own garden. I should advise her to look for a gardening center that provides quality supplies.
