On this episode of the Rose Chat Podcast welcomes Bob Blomberg, he's the inventor of the Gardener's Hollow Leg, a gardening debris and harvesting bag that you wear! It's a fabric sack attached to a belt that is worn while you are working in the garden. It's ideal for doing light pruning, dead-heading, spot-weeding, and general neatening. There’s even a Velcro-closed pocket for your cell phone or iPod! The patented ring-opening at the top makes it easy to drop your clippings into the sack! This gardening innovation could come in handy for the rose gardener.
