The art part:
Woolly Pockets will have you thinking about plants in a whole new way. Not quite a pot, more interesting than a window box, these planting “pockets” allow you to place one plant in just the right spot, create a planting “shelf”, or go wild and turn your interior or exterior walls into a living, breathing installation straight out of Where the Wild Things Are.
The science part:
Woolly Pockets are earth-friendly because they are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.
The fabric pockets breathe. That keeps plants happy because it allows air to get to the soil through the walls of the container. When the roots sense air, they do something called “air pruning.” This is the natural process of stopping their own growth when they sense they've reached the limits of their space. Unlike plants in clay, metal, or plastic containers, which will keep growing roots in long circles, plants in woolly pockets never get root-bound.
More pluses: Woolly pockets are lightweight and fold flat, which makes them very easy to use, move, and store just about anywhere. They feature a moisture barrier that keeps water inside the pocket where it can nourish your plants – and away from your walls and furniture.
Let the wild rumpus start.
