Miguel Nelson is the inventor of the Woolly Pocket and he and his brother, Rodney Nelson, operate Woolly Pocket Gardening Company in the US.
Miguel Nelson has a background in sculpture and as the author of Shed Style has observed ‘he obviously thinks about sculpture in a completely different way than artists whose work stands on a pedestal in the garden or in the foyer of a home’.
His event space titled Smog Shoppe is where the Woolly Pocket concept began. The Pockets were devised as a way to grow plants vertically to soften the walls of this disused vehicle emissions testing site. The pockets enable people to grow plants on indoor and outdoor walls – very useful for those with limited spaces For further details on this product please refer to the Green Wall pages of Garden Beet.
