Woolly Pocket Company has recently been sold by brothers Miguel Nelson and Rodney Nelson to its manufacturer in the United States.
Over in the UK Wally Pockets (made by Woolly Pocket) are in short supply. Wally are the popular felted fabric vertical garden planter that has been taking the world by storm.
One can only assume the new owners are grappling with delivery of palettes, customs and the UK demand.
For the first time in five years our sister vertical garden retailer – Garden Beet UK, has experienced unusually long delays with its arrival of its mid summer stock.
Garden Beet has been liaising almost daily with its customers over the last weeks.
Architects and builders are the most inconvenienced as they have strict construction time tables to adhere to. Many have to get off site in the next week. Unfortunately for Woolly Pocket, Garden Beet has been forced to recommend other vertical garden systems.
Customers who have already purchased plants are also suffering.
Garden Beet was the first importer of the Woolly Pocket into the UK and has been using the vertical garden system since it first came onto the market in 2009.
The above photo is some of Woolly Pocket’s fabulous promotional material taken in the early years. Much of the original imagery used to promote the products involved naked people lounging around vertical gardens.
