sack pot on car‘How can we reverse the tendency to pay more for the container than the contents?’ mused a couple of French design and landscaping team working on a roof garden.

These cute, eco-chic containers are an alternative solution to get round the constraints of the creation of a roof garden in town. Traditional containers often mean transportation troubles, excessive weight, expense and – in the case of roof-garden friendly pots – a lack of choice.

The ‘Bacsacs‘, however, are frost and UV-resistant cloth and made from a permeable geotextile fabric, which lets the soil breathe and the water pass through, and weigh less than a kilo. C’est bon!
