Weekend Project: Vertical Hanging Garden

'Been seeing these Woolly Pockets floating around recently from Apartment Therapy to Martha Stewart and so on and so on and so on. But I never saw them so nicely displayed as they are over at Sunset.com. Designed by Flora Grubb Gardens (415/626-7256), using Woolly Pockets they've created an obtainable urban display of greenery I'm loving. The pockets are made from recycled plastic bottles which are filled with soil, planted and hung (see video demo below). And because they are lined with moisture barriers, they don't leak, so they can be used inside as well. Click here to read what you can plant in these and other instructions are available at woollypocket.com. Image above by Thomas J. Story. All other images from woollypocket.com.

What a fun idea, especially for small spaces. I like the shop front too.

These would be great in my little apartment because I don't have a lot of room for many pots, and of course to dress up my walls. I will definitely look into this some more.

Thanks :)
