To add a little color to the outside of your home, or perfect in urban locales where ground gardening is not possible, hanging baskets in the summer are ideal. With so many interesting wrought iron, moss grass and decorative hanging baskets to choose from; just add your favorite flowers and your home immediately has an eye catching suspended garden. Don’t forget about flowers for your deck containers and window boxes too!
If you visit your local garden center, you will see that ready-made hanging baskets can cost upwards of $50 for a large decorative basket. If you need several to hang off your pergola, you are looking at a huge expense. If you grow your own flowering plants from seed, you can do it all for just a few dollars and the plants you grow will be healthier, more vibrant and bloom longer.
There are no hard and fast rules about how to create your hanging flower basket. Choose the flowers you love; just remember to keep the higher growing flowers on the inside and the shorter ones on the outside edge so that all can be seen when fully grown. Add a little baby’s breath for a touch of whimsy, or use sweet alyssum to create soft carpet filler for the entire hanging basket.
