I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A LOVER AND A GROWER OF PLANTS. LIVING IN THE CITY MY CHANCE TO GARDEN HAS ALWAYS BEEN VERY LIMITED
Restricted basically to house plants, window cell boxes and visits to gardening centers. I became more and more interested in my window cell. I wanted to grow more plants, to create sort of a cottage garden.
Shortly not only I found out most plants cannot live and thrive in my boxes, no matter which kind of plastic planter I choose, but I’ve learnt it was truly dangerous. On a stormy day one of the bigger boxes was blown down, I was shocked. No one was hurt but it was a breaking point. I was frustrated and still full of passion. I was not giving up. Got in the craze.
THEN I HAD AN IDEA, AND I HAD TO TRY IT OUT IMMEDIATELY
What did I need after all? (hell a lot of things) I needed a planter that has depth, can be fixed safely on my window cell, looks good, light weight, air pruning – let’s dream big, spacious and fits companion planting, stays horizontal without the water running off, and has structure above the planter, so plants can climb, flowers have support, and can obscure the neighboring building, and my neighbors’ laundry, and I wanted all of those things as one and only subject.
No metal hangers, no added plate for excess water nor a piece of plastic can house mostly pelargoniums, and ever changing flowers will be wilting for different reasons but with the same outcome.
I LOOKED AROUND, AND FOUND OUT, THERE WAS NOT SUCH A THING ON THE MARKET.
What ever there was out there, I’ve already tried and knew they were not going to give me the roses I dream of.
So, I created that very thing over a year. The success is unbelievable for beauty and practicality. I chose existing materials already in use in agriculture. The clothe is strong, lets air and water through. UVB resistant and can last for seasons.
I use lining keeping the compost inside, and to prevent stains and run off. Double water repellent lining helps to keep some excess water in with no need of a plate. I fix the whole thing the way your backpack is fixed on your shoulder. The earth pocket is designed on a way that three sticks can be easily inserted in the lining and still separated from the compost. This way a cone created above the pocket just like in a real garden.
Finally I decieded to offer this new brand of product for similar city dwelling plants lovers to spice up what is going on.
