Wall planters have traditionally be made from ceramics or wire baskets with liners. Prices vary but it is possible to adorn your wall with a potted plant for approximately £8-£15. With that type of money you could either buy a traditional ceramic design or even a contemporary orb wall planter.
So why would someone choose a Woolly Pocket wall planter when prices start at £35? There are 10 excellent reasons
It is approximately double the size of the standard wall planter. One Woolly Pocket measures 61cm x38cm – it has a width of two standard ruler lengths. Most ceramic and wire basket wall planters would be lucky to reach 30cm in width.
2. PROMOTES HEALTHY PLANTS
The root system of the standard wall planter will evenutally become pot bound if you do not repot the plant. The root system of the Woolly Pocket plant will not become pot bound. The Woolly Pocket allows a plant’s root system to breath thereby allowing the root system to be airpruned. The plants will be much happier and will only grow as big as the space provided in the Woolly Pocket.
3. INDOOR OUTDOOR
Woolly Pocket can be located indoors and outdoors whereas the cermaic wall planters tend to be for outdoor use only
4. CONSERVES WATER
When using the lined Woolly Pocket water is conserved . This is important as wall planters tend to dry out more readily than planting beds located on the ground.
5. MODULAR FLEXIBLE GREEN WALL SYSTEM
Woolly Pockets allow you to add more units over time. The pockets are part of a green wall system (also referred to as a living wall or vertical garden) that allow you to cover a wall as fast or as slow as you wish. The pockets are designed to enable you to choose plants that either showcase the pockets or provide full plant coverage. Your standard ceramic or wire wall planter is not designed to create a wall like this.
6. ECONOMIES OF SCALE
Woolly Pockets come in three sizes. Woolly Wally One (small) , Woolly Wally Three (medium) and Woolly Wally Five (large). The medium and the large units are cheaper per square meter. Basically the bigger area of wall you wish to cover with plants the cheaper the wall planter becomes.

8. ETHICAL PRODUCTION

the Pockets look great.
