Live it Up (Or Out, Or In) with Woolly Pocket Living Wall Planters

Ah, Spring! There’s a fresh breeze on the air, the sun is shining, and it’s time to polish off the ole green thumb and start planting herbs and vegetables for those upcoming summer parties.

Nothing’s gonna be sweeter than the mingling scents of hard work and hot food when you drop some of your very own homegrown veggies on the grill this summer, but not many people want to spend their whole spring tending to a large garden. Even if you daydream of spending your days nurturing a traditional garden, living in a city or small home may mean you just don’t have the space.

Woolly Pocket has considered all of this – and more – in the design of their newest Living Wall Planters. These little plastic wonders are incredibly easy to maintain, house a huge variety of plants, can be used indoors or outdoors and, with a well-planned layout, make one heck of a hanging garden backdrop for practically any space.

Plant Your Heart Out

You may be wondering what all can be planted in the Living Wall Planter. Well, are you a man that likes freedom? Because you can plant pretty much anything you want in these beauties. If you’re getting geared up for a summer full of fire-grilled pizzas, why not plant a pizza garden with some of your favorite toppings like onions, tomatoes, and peppers? Spruce up your home office by dropping in a few tropical house plants and creating a living gallery wall. Due to an incredibly compact and well-rounded design, practically any plant can thrive in the LWP, from cooking and recreational herbs to vegetables and houseplants. The front and back of the planter is equipped with small ventilation holes that allow your plant’s roots to breathe as it grows, while an integrated water well in the back keeps plants satiated without over-saturating them.

Keep Your Hands (and Footprint) Clean

Sometimes, even the most environmentally-conscious people suffer from brown thumb, or simply don’t have the time to take on the maintenance that often comes along with traditional planters or gardens. Luckily, Woolly Pocket has designed the LWP with an eye toward versatility and easy maintenance, which means you can create a functional, eye-catching garden regardless of your planting experience. The built-in water well holds a liter of water, which means you can go up to two weeks without watering. At the same time, the Living Wall Planter’s ventilation system allows water to absorb and evaporate effectively, which means you no longer need to worry about discovering a nasty leak under your planter. You don’t need to worry about your edibles or stain your carbon conscience either: the LWP is made from 100% post-consumer recycled milk jugs containing no BPA, making it one of the safest plastics for food products.

Make a Statement

If you spend any time out in the world, online, or anywhere that’s not under a rock, you’ve probably noticed the increasing popularity of living walls. As is the case with a lot of projects, an amazing inspiration photo is nice to look at, but creating your own photo-spread-worthy hanging garden can be a little intimidating when you get down to the nuts-and-bolts of making it work. This year, you don’t need to spend another spring in the weeds trying to rig up a complicated irrigation system or searching for the perfect container for each plant. The LWP comes with a hanging kit that lets you install it nearly anywhere with just a screwdriver and few spare minutes, and if you want to go big, Woolly Pocket also offers drip kits that let you create a fast and easy automatic irrigation system to connect multiple Living Wall Planters into a full display. The modern design of the planters makes a pleasing statement while still letting your plants do most of the showing off, a comfortable, rounded shape makes it easy to carry kitchen herbs outside for a backyard barbecue, and a flattened bottom means that the planters can be used just as easily on a table or counter-top.

Spring is the season to go green or go home, and Woolly Pocket’s thoughtful design makes their Livable Wall Planter a stylish, nearly maintenance-free solution to all your gardening woes. Impress and entertain with counter-top herbs, easy fresh edibles, and living walls that will have your summer guests asking who your landscape artist is.
