I kind of up cycled old fabric and plastic foil. The bags are hung up with s - hooks.
In my opinion it's a nice idea and a small project. I entered in a contest with it but the judges didn't like the concept behind it.
There are some pictures in my gallery if you want to have a closer look at the bags. Feel free to leave a comment Smiley.

Those look great, and what an awesome way to keep bunnies out of your plants!

What a great idea! Those judges were wrong. This would be good for growing herbs, and for people with limited space, like apartment dwellers. Smiley

These judges don't know anything; It looks lovely, it's green and it's recycling. Fabulous!

Thanks a lot for the support Smiley, you're awesome.That's what I needed right now. I actually put most of my herbs in there and I do hope that the bags are rather snail save. Last year was a mild catastrophe Sad.
The judges kind of freaked me, they asked me if I'm out of my mind. One of the  topics was alternative gardening. Well, I better get over it.

And again thanks for the comments,

It might keep out ground crawling bugs, like woodlice. They are in all my potted plants. They can nibble on new seedlings. The drawback on the fabric is it can rot out. Perhaps you took that into account and used special fabric and put drainage holes in foil bags.

I like the wall of green and your idea works for someone who doesn't like power tools or can't permanently mount something.

That judge sounds very closed minded. The fact is special bags are frequently being used to grow plants and vertical gardens are becoming more popular.

Silly judges. I LOVE your idea. I bought a bunch of X-large men's shirts at a bag sale last week. They're mostly Hawaiian prints. I was wondering what I was going to do with the pretty fabric. Now I know. I'm going to cut some of it up and use your idea and hang them on our chain link fence. Thank you! Thank you! Very clever and creative.

I thought it was great!  I saw on a decorating show that someone but a little wall up like that in their apartment.  It looked really great!!
