Can we use green roof module to simulate vertical garden? Please brief me on it. I am working on vertical garden thermal performance. Please help me out. Because I am not able to find any other simulation method for the vertical garden.

It isn't recommended, as per page 215 of the InputOutputReference of the EnergyPlus documentation in reference to the EcoRoof.

It states "This model was developed for low-sloped exterior surfaces (roofs). It is not recommended for high-sloped exterior surfaces (e.g., walls)."
