Plant Pillow - tools, plants, water, assembled

Plant Pillow - tools, plants, water, assembled

After much experimentation, I've made a number of these plant pillows (foreground) in various sizes.

Among others, the 3 main issues I ran into:
1. Type of garden fabric to use - sturdy non-rip that allows water penetration was the hardest to find. I tried about 7-8 different types.
2. Sizes - too big and the pillows were too bulky and difficult to carry, too small and they were too difficult to get the plants into.
3. Filling the bags with organic garden soil quickly and easily - this one was solved by my hubby bless him!

I make the bags in several sizes depending on use. That took much trial and lots of error.

In this photo I've gotten the items together that I need to plant my first Plant Pillow. It will contain spreading "stepables" plants - some for shade, some for sun. This batch of pillows will help hold all the bark we spread on our hillside from sliding. Between the bags themselves placed in the steepest locations to hold the bark in place and the spreading plants we shouldn't have a problem. Just the plants alone would not have been enough.

Beautiful Spotted Lilies

Beautiful Spotted Lilies

Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere, though the range extends into the northern subtropics. They comprise a genus of about 110 species in the lily family (Liliaceae).

Lilies form an important group of flowering garden plants, and are important culturally and in literature in much of the world. Some species are sometimes grown or harvested for the edible bulbs.

The species in this genus are the true lilies. Many other plants exist with "lily" in the common English name, some of which are quite unrelated to the true lilies.
