SackGarden Mobile Gardening Bed
SackGarden Mobile Gardening Bed

The SackGarden Mobile Gardening Bed is designed to allow one to grow food or flowers just about anywhere (e.g., rooftop, patio, garage, shed, even on a fence)-as long as there's a reasonable amount of light. The reusable (up to 5 years) soil sacks are reportedly stretchable, sturdy, permeable, and come with handles for easy moving. To plant a SackGarden, (1) zip-tie off one end of a sack, (2) fill with potting soil, (3) zip-tie off the other end, (4) cut small holes in the sack where the plants are to grow, then (5) sow seed in the cut-out areas and water. Use the handles provided to move the sacks. Two kits are available, each with three 3-foot-long sacks: one has 8-inch- diameter sacks (for herbs, greens, and smaller flowers); the other has 12-inch-diameter sacks (for larger vegetables and flowers). Both kits include the handles, zip ties, drainage pipes with elbow fittings, clear plastic sheet, black plastic weed barrier sheet, and instructions.
