  1. Personalize your planter. Because your new planter will have a prominent place in your home, you may want to make the planter unique to you. Stencils are an easy way to dress up a fabric planter. Simply place the stencil on top of the fabric, and carefully paint on to the stencil and through to the fabric using the paint color of your choice.

  2. Select your location. Hang your pocket planter in a location that gets the right amount of sunlight for your selected herbs or plants.

  3. Hang your planter. Hanging is easy using either the reinforced hanging loops, or heavy duty grommets at the top. Make a small mark where the grommet holes will be placed on the wall. Drill holes in wall, then, slide fasteners into the holes. S hooks work well if you would like to attach the planter to a fence. You can also hang them on rods using the attached loops.

  4. Plant the pockets. Use the Big Grip Hand Trowel to scoop up potting soil and place neatly into the pockets. The oversized scoop with help you get the planting mix in to the pockets quickly and easily.

  5. Care for your Herbs. After you have planted your herbs, you will need to care for your new plants.

If you choose to plant larger plants or vegetables, the Powergear2™ pruner is a great choice for pruning larger stems.
