Vertical Wall Planters from Woolly Pockets

We’ve recently admired these verdant vertical gardens that seem to be everywhere—adorning storefronts, interior spaces, and restaurant patios. A little sleuthing turned up a popular source used by designers and architects: Woolly Pockets, modular gardening containers made by a family-owned business based in Los Angeles and Phoenix. Woolly Pockets are flexible, breathable gardening containers that come in two styles: horizontal or vertical. Handmade in the US from felt made from recycled plastic bottles, lined Woolly Pockets can be used indoors (they have built-in moisture protection to keep floors and walls from getting wet); unlined Woolly Pockets are also available for outdoor gardening when maximum drainage is desired. For user guidelines, go to Woolly Pocket.

Above: Woolly Pockets make ideal in-kitchen gardens.

Above: At 68 inches in length, the Wally Pocket Three is $91 for the unlined and $125 for the lined at Velocity Art and Design (a five-pocket version is also available).

Above: The Wally Pocket One measures 24 inches wide and is $49 for the lined and $39 for the unlined at Velocity Art and Design.

NOT EXPENSIVE. Get all the items that it is made of for free -- after builders are done building, at the dump, when neighbors finish a project. ask nicely, take a no or yes until you get a yes somewhere. Thank You. Nice thought!

INEXPENSIVE, RE-USE SOIL AND SAVED SEEDS, OR INEXPENSIVE SEEDS, USE CLOTH FROM OLD CLOTHING, COATS, BLANKETS, SHEETS, DRAPES, CURTAINS, AND MAKE EVERYTHING YOURSELF, WITH WHAT EVER MATERIALS ONE CAN GET FREE -- FOR EXAMPLE SCRAP WOOD.

well,yes, the project is expeive but the important thing is the inspiration it gives. there are many alternative solutions:like melissa ledet said in her comment you can buy a simple shoe hanger or if you have a sewing machine...DIY!

Everyone thinks they are expensive, so how about DYI? Buy a shoe hanger from Wal-Mart. They are normally a beige color. Poke a small hole in each pocket. Fill with dirt and plant. You can paint it any color if you want to. Thoughts?
