Increasing migration from rural areas to urban areas has led to an increase in the rate of urban construction and a decrease in open green spaces. Vertical gardens are one of the alternative methods that can be used to increase open green spaces. This study was conducted to determine the cultivation possibility of Lavandula stoechas L. in some vertical garden systems. The experiment was set up with 3 replications according to the randomized plot design. There were 24 plants in each replication. Lavandula stoechas plants were grown in felt system, modular panel system, hydroponic system and horizontal system (control) for 12 weeks. Plant growth was detected in all systems. At the end of the fourth week, the highest plant height was achieved in the horizontal system (10.33 cm), the modular panel system (9.67 cm) and the felt system (9.00 cm). At the end of the 8th and 12th weeks, there was no difference between the treatments in terms of plant heights. At the end of the 4th and 12th weeks, the plant diameter was high in the horizontal system and modular panel system, and no difference was detected at the end of the 12th week. The root length changed between 26.53 cm and 27.57 cm.
