Miguel and Rodney Nelson Woolly Pockets Our garden was driving us up the wall until these hang-anywhere, plant-anything, impress-everyone ecoplanters showed up. Now, thanks to these brothers, we've got it right where we want it.

Woolly Pocket Gardening Containers
Problem: Acute white wallitis is boring patient nearly to death.
Treatment: Woolly Pockets, new modular nests for anywhere gardening.
The latest independent endeavor from the clever folks behind Los Angeles’s uber-green event spaces Marvimon and SmogShoppe, Woolly Pockets take planting to a whole new level. Simply hang the soft containers where you see fit, fill with soil and plants, and watch the vertical garden grow.
Designed for use on just about any wall (special shapes available for floor or tabletop), the soft pods are made from 90 percent recycled material (mainly plastic bottles) and come in a variety of colors and sizes for in- and outdoor use.
Possible side effect: Exposed thumbs may turn green.
