I really love this subject as it works so well in small spaces.
Continually I here people say "I don't have enough space in my courtyard"! and yet they have a wall that receives lots of full sun.
So, here is what I have decided to do, below I am going to create a wide range of resource links to help you get all the information that you need!
This way it will be a full blown course in itself and you won't have to go and look anywhere else on the web.
Get vertical with Hydroponics
I am not a massive fan of hydroponics, I actually prefer aquaponics as its an organic alternative to hydroponics.
Either way you can go vertical with a system such as this one and save a lot of space!
Take a look at the video below of this truly wonderful garden all grown in hydroponics!
Vertical Garden Aquaponics Systems
This idea combines two of my favorite urban food growing solutions – vertical gardening, and aquaponics. Can they be friends? Of course they can!
Charlie from Ecolicious in Sydney has been trialling a funky combo of these techniques in various urban gardens he’s been designing of late. Vertical growing space of edible vegies and herbs, irrigated by a solar powered pump.
And beneath it all, an aquaponics system which cycles fishy nutrients to grow the plants above…Read More Here
Here it is
If you decide to get into Aquaponics, sooner or later you are going to realize that your grow beds that you originally thought were too big to go into that tiny confined courtyard space have now made a liar of you. The plants are taking over the place and you are slowly running out of valuable space!
They call it “the madness” in Aquaponics – when you suddenly realize that your need more and more space to grow more and more fish and plants because Aquaponics by its nature is Rampant! Plants go berserk once they they experience how good this stuff is Read the rest of the article and view photo's here!

Is you garden space limited? Why not try Vertical Vegetable gardening? Yes, you can grow veggies in a vertical garden. It's a fantastic way to conserve space and have fun while your doing it.
Yes, straight up- or even upside down- both are an option. How?
Well, you'll need a wall, fence, trellis or something similar to get you started. Also, you'll need to consider which plants you want to use.
Many are the vegetables and fruit suitable to vertical vegetable gardening. See below!
Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peas, Beans, Grapes, Miniature-melons, and Passionfruit
Tomatoes- This wonderful fruit can be trained up a trellis or wire fence. Also, you can hang them upside down in many of the varieties of containers now available.
Cucumbers- They are basicly grown using similar methods to Tomatoes, but here a wire or lattice fence is preferable.
Peas- There are just so many great different varieties of Peas around. My favorite is the humble Snow Pea. These can also be grown on a trellis or wire fence. As Peas have a natural hooking system, they can latch on and climb easily without much help. As a vertical vegetable, they're a cinch to grow.
Grapes- Generally you will need a very large area for grapes; a wall or arbour is preferable. The key with grapes: surrounded them with lots of air, as they are susceptible to disease in a humid environment.
