Hanging Container Gardens

Hanging baskets follow the same recipe as containers as far as care goes. But instead of an upright thriller plant, you want more spillers and fillers. You can always go old-school with a simple fern, but we'll show you how to mix it up.

Containers do not have to be displayed in a pot on the ground. Hanging, they can displayed on walls, porches, or trees. We love the different looks you can create by using unique containers and different flower combinations. Hanging containers elevate color to eye level instead of relegating it to the ground. There are also many plants that grow better in a container than they do on the ground. A hanging container allows you to bring color to an area that may not be the right fit for a container in a pot.
