We like the look of a sack for a flower pot—a bit like growing a plant right out of your bag of soil. French company BACSAC may have made it stylish (it’s the first company we know to coin the trend), but the idea is a descendant of the grow pots that nurseries use to cultivate and transplant seedlings. Other features include simplicity, portability, and putting recycled material to good use. Here are our favorites.
