Growing a vertical garden in a bag

Christmas has come early at A.M.A. Horticulture with a new machine to produce Al’s Flower Pouch, the original vertical garden in a bag.

“With this new machine, we’re able to continue delivering top quality Al’s Flower Pouches at a more efficient rate of production,” says Rick Bradt, managing director of A.M.A. Horticulture. “That’s good news for the many growers, garden centers, distributors, and home gardeners who count on this solution.”

“It’s been exciting to see the growing interest in this vertical gardening solution,” says Amanda Wolfe, who handles Al’s Flower Pouch sales for the A.M.A. team.

Amanda is pictured below (center) along with Dietrich Wiebe (left), who handles A.M.A. maintenance, and Rene Van Paassen (right), who is overseeing A.M.A.’s production.

Al’s Flower Pouch was invented by late company founder, Allen Monsma, in 1992, and since then has been sold in over 20 countries worldwide, with A.M.A. remaining the exclusive manufacturer, producing the pouches in Kingsville, Ontario.

As a niche vertical planter, Al’s Flower Pouch gets plants up off the ground for easy maintenance. It is designed to hang flat against walls, balconies, fences, patios, and more.

"For growers and garden centers, Al’s Flower Pouch also helps improve ROI by optimizing unused greenhouse space. Walls, under gutters, and gable ends can be turned into productive, revenue-generating space without sacrificing other crops and the pouches work with existing irrigation systems," Amanda continues.

Last year, A.M.A. launched a new website to capture creative uses of Al’s Flower Pouch and help growers ‘think outside the basket’. The site features image galleries from growers and home gardeners around the world, as well as helpful how-to videos and tips on topics such as filling, planting, and watering pouches.
