Textile company Acton's owner David Acton, who is making the product, said it works as a vertical vegetable patch. It will retail at just £1.30 and for every purchase made, the Rotary Club will donate another vertical grow bag to schools, urban farms or a poor country.
Acton said: "It's inexpensive to make, so the retail price is low. The intention is to sell it through garden centres. It was an idea that popped up at a Rotary Club meeting when we were talking about food and water shortages."
The tubular polythene product has a string to hang from a tree or balcony. The grower can puncture a hole above a water reservoir at the bottom of the bag. Water can then be caught and recycled. It can be used in rows and is suitable for beans, courgettes, tomatoes and other fruit and vegetables.
Acton is launching Vertical Grow Bag this autumn.
