A+Vertical+Garden+That’s+Fun+for+Kids.jpg

By a sunny, inside window or on your patio, you and your kids can explore a whole new way to garden. Pick out the coolest plants, wrap them up and put them in the pockets. Bundle an exciting bunch in the same pocket and throw in some seeds. You can even use cuttings or other plants in the yard. Try anything and have fun.

Pick your favorite plants, wrap the roots, then slip them into the pockets.

Explore a Whole New Way to Garden

Wrap each plant neatly and slip into the soft felt pockets. Kids love to learn about plants and watch the roots grow into the felt. It’s a hands-on way to understand gardening, and glimpse the future of growing food. With a little practice, your family will become plant wall masters.

Automatic Watering Makes Growing Easy

Your Florafelt vertical garden waters automatically with a pump and timer. Just top off the tank every now and then, and the pump waters your vertical garden from the top. The excess drains into the tank and recirculates for sustainable gardening. Custom loose fibers let the roots breathe for easy growth, and it’s fun to watch the roots dig into the felt. A timer activates the pump each day for 30 minutes, so you’ll never forget to water. Plants love it, too.

A Fun Family Project

A happy plant bursts with beautiful colors, and your family will be rewarded with a vibrant, flowering display. Any plant can grow in Florafelt Pockets, so try something new. Use different combinations and change it up when you learn what thrives in your lighting and environment. At the end of season, remove the plants, shake out the wraps and store for next year. It’s a fun family project.

Simply Hang and Grow

The Florafelt Compact Vertical Garden Kit is affordable and fun and can be used over and over. Unfold the panel and hang from the included mounting hooks. Fill the tank with water then plug in the timer. Use the provided felt squares to wrap your plants, stretch open the pockets and insert into your plants. Try your favorite plants and even start from seeds. It’s an easy way to learn about vertical gardening.

Dear Plants On Walls, Hope you have been doing well. I wanted to catch you up with the happenings with your fabulous product. Last month was kind of a ‘launch’ of the 8-pocket system in an African mahogany frame.

The first one we donated to St. Clement’s School for their ‘live’ auction item at the annual fundraising dinner (they painted and made their frame more custom, as pictured). It was fun to attend the event and watch the parents bid on this ‘priceless’ item as they term it.

The photo with the two children is the special planter installed at their house.

The system we have set up in our office is fully edible and provides greens for 2-3 people every 4-5 days.

The final set of photos is a rooftop patio here in Kaka’ako. It definitely adds to the outdoor bbq/patio area in the urban core of Honolulu.

The wood systems are catching on slowly and we have sold a few last month for the start. They are made of African mahogany and have a liquid rubber waterproofing liner. The rod holding the pocket insert has a thumb scroll to easily remove for cleaning or anything you may need. So with the whole kit inserted and extra water proofing, we are seeing interest by luxury condominium dwellers.

Elegant and Simple Vertical Garden

A Florafelt Compact Vertical Garden Kit was used to create a stylish vertical garden for a home in the Culver City area of Los Angeles. Designer Tucker Warner mounted the vertical garden kit on a shelf so it appears that the plants are floating. The draping leaves hide the tank, digital timer and cord. It's an elegant and very simple way to add plants to interior design.

Green Marketing Gone Vertical

Rebecca Sheedy of Floraform Design is thrilled that her first vertical garden is also one of her most visible. Marx Foods may be the first, but Rebecca has since spent five years creating living walls, and ran a business maintaining gardens for several years before that. “I just love plants and always find a way to be out there with them,” she says.

She honed her expertise while studying botany at the University of Washington and The Evergreen State College. “I’m really into color, contrast, texture and shapes,” she says. In fact, her expertise is international. “During college, I did research in Costa Rica to estimate the biomass of forest canopy. We found there’s more biomass in the canopy than on the forest floor.”

Rebecca's first vertical garden serenely packs a green marketing punch from its post overlooking the Marx Foods checkout area. “I started small with a Florafelt Compact Vertical Garden Kit with 8-pockets for the first 6 to 8 months,” Rebecca explains. “I learned what plants were happy where. Now there are 7 Compact Kits lined up together for 56 pockets.”

Plus a gorgeous frame that beautifully sets off the plants within. “The frame was Marx Foods’ idea. To hide the freezers, we incorporated the garden into the freezer wall. The garden sets Marx apart, makes a statement and generates a lot of buzz.”

Rebecca selects plants as carefully as Marx Foods shops for their clientele. The garden includes Homalomena, Medusa Bromeliads, Kangaroo Paw Fern, Vresia (a mottled leaf bromeliad), Spathiphyllum, Anthurium, Aglaonema (has a good sprawling habit and fills in the edges"), Philodendron and Schefflera 'Soliel,' which has stunning chartreuse leaves.

Rebecca shopped around before settling exclusively on Plants On Walls. “Back then a lot of people created walls themselves in a Patrick Blanc style, stapling felt to a wall. But I made sure to use a Compact Kit – it’s fully contained and operates on its own. I like how the hardware is invisible. People saw it and got in touch with me.”

Since then, Rebecca has created distinctive and beautiful vertical gardens for restaurants, homes, wine shops, doctors’ offices, you name it. Interestingly, doctors request the gardens for their examination rooms. “There is a big alternative medicine scene here – doctors prescribe plants as medicine,” she says.
