This is part two of your regularly scheduled program: Extreme Urban Gardening. To see part I, go here.


The creators of Phoenix and Los Angeles based Woolly Pockets may just be the best thing since terrariums. They totally know what is up with this hothotheat we have here. But Woolly Pockets are not only for having your own little indoor garden, you can hang them outside too, for those of your who are I Hate You lucky enough to dwell in a state where green things actually live outside.

Did I mention they make for a stunning display?




The pockets are made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles that have been felted by a machine. This allows the soil to properly aerate, and allows the roots to stunt their own growth after they detect that they have reach maximum sustainable size for the container they are in. No tangled mashed roots in these “pots”! They govern themselves. Plants are such ALIVE and AMAZING organisms! It’s really incredible. Woolly Pockets really consider this in the design of their products. Not only that, but their entire business is green, their offices are solar powered and LEED Platinum certified. I like that. I like it a lot. Here’s what they have to say about their pockets:

Woolly Pockets are flexible, breathable, and modular gardening containers. They`come in two styles: those designed to be placed on horizontal surfaces, and those designed to be hung on walls for vertical gardening. You can use Woolly Pockets both indoors and out; they have built-in moisture barriers to help protect furniture, and they’re equally at home outside in the elements. They’re perfect for creating urban gardens where you have space to garden but no land to garden in. Woolly Pockets are lightweight and can be folded flat, which makes them very easy to use, move, and store just about anywhere.

These are seriously something to consider, folks. Oh and their site is hilarious…stating the Woolly Pockets love parties and that they’ll help absorb the noise, as well as the models á la nude chillin’ with strategically placed pockets, showing the different sizes.

Hop on over and grab one or ten or something.
