Several companies now make hanging ‘pockets’ into which can be planted an assortment of both edible and ornamental plants. They are typically made of a breathable fabric which allows air to circulate and water to percolate. A great idea for a balcony where floor space is at a premium as they can be hung on a wall or attached to a railing. Woolly Pocket is one of the leaders in this innovative system.

dress up a garden shed or studio.
Design by Cultivar LLC
Cultivar LLC won ‘Best Design’ at the container show with their weathered wooden wall planters filled with ‘Jet Fire’ dwarf daffodils and delicate ferns. A series of parallel boxes extending up the height of the wall took up little space yet added color and life to an otherwise uninspiring structure.
An exciting new book ‘Garden Up’ by Susan Morrison and Rebecca Sweet has just hit the bookstores and contains dozens of vertical gardening ideas from gutter gardens suspended from rafters to strategies for providing screening from neighbors, utility poles and A/C units. It also has step by step instructions on how to build the living walls described above as well as resources for purchasing frames and other materials. Well written, beautifully photographed and full of practical design tips for every gardener.
