Hanging Strawberry Pots a Great Idea

Hanging strawberry pots meet gardening needs for growing up.

My third pick for a “Best Of” the new products at the 2012 ProGreen industry tradeshow is the Urban Garden Pocket Planter by NCV.

These light-weight plastic containers will make small-space gardening easier.

I can imagine a row of these clever pots hanging from a balcony container garden or a single one brightening a drab spot on the patio.

The pots can be planted to grow strawberries, but they would be great for other kinds of gardening, too. The company suggests planting them with themed herb gardens, like an Italian culinary garden with basil, parsley, oregano and thyme.

If you have a spot to hang a pot, you can fill it with herbs, baby greens, annual flowers, succulents and more. The top is open so taller plants, like peppers, can be planted there.

The planters are made of injected molded plastic and have a textured finish. They can be taken apart to make shipping and storage easier.

New Christie Ventures (NCV) manufactures a wide variety of packaging and products for greenhouses and nursery production such as trays, buckets, stake and hang tags, and container wraps.

I met general manager Chris DePaolo at the ProGreen tradeshow.

He gave me a demonstration of the pocket planters and said they’ll be available at Home Depot and some independent garden centers this spring.
