How to Make a Plant Pocket with Landscape Fabric

Ever heard of a Wooly Pocket? Essentially, it is a wool pocket that can be hung from a deck, wall, or anywhere you want to grow plants vertically. Although, they look amazing and hold moisture well but they’re EXPENSIVE. I saw one pocket selling for $40! So, I decided to make my own version out of leftover landscape fabric because I had lots of seedlings and no where to plant them. The dimensions will vary depending on the size of area and how many pockets you want.

There are two different types of pockets I made for my backyard.  One is attached to the bottoms of my raised beds and another is a “sleeve” the railing of my deck, creating planting pockets on both sides.  Here is the basic outline.

The over-the-deck pockets follow similar instructions except for a few changes in the beginning.
