About

 today’s market of home gardening is shrinking…literally. The trend in today’s market is “urban gardening”  moving to smaller homes, townhouses, condos, duplexes, and apartments. The up and coming millennials want to eat healthy and organic however, they are finding it harder and more expensive to find truly organic vegetables and herbs. The older demographic wants to build flower or vegetable gardens, but with bending over, weeding and daily maintenance, this has become a less than desirable practice.   

· easy to use -  Plant-n-Pocket setting up and planting 18 plants in less than 20 minutes was the solution. its small, lightweight, easy to move, and transport; still using soil (2 cups per pocket) a minimal amount of water roughly 1 gallon per day (at the most) also because the pockets are is small its easy to avoid the weeds and chemicals 

· small footprint ( 16” diameter & 54" tall) 

· AFFORDABLE !!!

· Water efficient & water saving - typically uses less than 1 gallon of water per day

  The  patent-pending tower design uses interchangeable fabric pocket socks and requires no additional tools or expertise. By lowering the consumption of space, soil, and water, Plant-n-Pocket vertical garden system offers a simple all-in-one alternative. Plant-n-Pocket is also not limited to planting flowers & food in the outdoors, but can also be used for planting indoors, through multiple seasons and holidays.

 outdoor or indoor...your Plant-n-Pocket will work great for either location winter or summer placement is depending on what you want to plant and when

While  growing up in Oregon in a farming community we had a garden, probably  some of my favorite memories were sitting out and getting to eat fresh vegetables right off the vine. And some of my most "not" favorite times were out in the garden pulling weeds. Later while in living in Southern California I started back with my passion of gardening on a much smaller plot of land I started to work on efficient gardening; one area  was tomatoes, another area was herbs & lettuce, another area  was vine vegetables , and still another area was fruits trees. 

Well  after 25 years I moved several times over the next few months and  was missing gardening. But the problem was going from a house to a townhouse where you typically don’t have the room, and at that point I  started noticing more and more people are moving smaller and kids coming out of college can’t really afford a house, but everyone including me wants to eat fresh vegetables and herbs.

So  I came up with this idea and after studying the market to see what was out there I noticed that the typical garden system was hydroponics it’s big and expensive, aeroponics are also big and expensive, or it was something in a vertical format once again big and expensive. 




My  background is in products and product design and development, but most importantly I’m passionate about it and I like to eat what i grow ...really fresh & organic vegetables. 

With Plant-n-Pocket it really is easy to accomplish

GREAT FOR KIDS & ADULTS

easy to use (only 54" tall), so kids as well as most adults can reach the top while not having to hurt themselves kneeling on the ground for a long period of time 

WHAT CAN YOU PLANT ? 

HERBS, PEPPERS, FLOWERS, LETTUCES, CHERRY TOMATOES, CARROTS, BEETS pockets are over 6" deep so they can handle many "ROOT" vegetables...just try and have fun

HOW TO PLANT

Your Plant-n-Pocket will come to you in a space efficient box (we don't want to create  waste where we don't have to) some assembly will be needed but trust me i made this simple. 

once the plant and pocket is put together slip the Pocket Sock over the center tube

 ...and start to fill with soil. we recommend 2 cups per pocket when using a 4" plant and 4 cups when using seeds.

POCKET SOCK

This is also one of the unique properties of the Plant-n-Pocket. this is also made from a recycled material that is durable and tough, once you use the Pocket Sock and go through a grow or growing season shake out the soil and remaining plant roots and throw it in the wash  let it dry and you are good to use it again and again.

 (we recommend an organic soil to fill the pockets, start from the top and work your way down the tube ) soil spillage will end up in the dish below. once the pockets are filled with soil start adding your plants and water....simple !!!

have you heard of AIR PRUNING ?

 Air pruning happens naturally when roots are exposed to air in the absence of high humidity. The roots are effectively “burned” off, causing the plant to constantly produce new and healthy branching roots. If roots are not exposed to air, they continue to grow around the container in a constricted pattern. well with Plant-n-Pocket because of the fabric Pocket Sock the roots will try and work their way through the weave, once they hit the air the roots are burned off and new roots created thus creating a healthier faster growing plant 

Risks and challenges

of course there are always risks but with my experience i really feel and believe i will get to you a very simple yet elegant vertical growing device that will last you through many seasons
