One of the newest trends in gardening is growing vegetables upside down, with the roots above the plant. Here are some common veggies that can be grown in this way.


Tomatoes are one of the best-known upside-down vegetables. There are hundreds of tutorials online on how to grow these plants upside down and you can even buy kits to help you with this. While any size tomatoes can be grown upside down, cherry tomatoes tend to be easier to manage when growing vegetables upside down.


Any vining vegetable can be grown in a hanging vegetable garden, and cucumbers are often a popular choice. You can grow slicing or pickling cucumbers as upside-down vegetables, but pickling cucumbers will be the easier of the two choices. Avoid using bush cucumbers as they will have a hard time growing using this method.


In your upside-down hanging vegetable garden, you should consider growing eggplants. Opt for smaller fruit varieties such as those from the egg-shaped varieties, miniature varieties and even some of the slender Asian varieties.


Beans do well in a hanging vegetable garden upside down. Both pole and bush beans can be grown upside down. Some beans with thin stalks may have issues dealing with gravity, however.
