Hanging Baskets

Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets are the ideal way to complete a garden room, adding depth to your plantscape. A hanging planter also allows for bounteous cascades, the truly lovely way to enjoy vines and other trailing plants. The classic is still wrought iron hanging baskets, and we offer English garden wrought iron hanging baskets in five sizes to meet all your plant and space needs. Be sure to take a look at our Martingale Scroll Bracket and Basket, too. It wall mounts for great lines while also providing a full round, rather than the half baskets common for wall planters, creating a lovely new silhouette. Order coir liners, ideal for every openwork hanging planter, too. Or try something new and exciting - our moss hanging planter. Our selection provides two fascinating shapes to showcase your chosen plants - the pyramid is especially unexpected. All come with a 20" black metal chain.

Hanging baskets are spectacular in any gardenscape, and can be carefree companions to your favorite months. Whether they require a bit of extra trimming depends on the flowers you choose for each hanging planter. Pair dragon wing or other begonias with any ivy or wire vine (or both!) and your hanging planter will take care of itself. That's true for many plants and plant combos - ask your nursery for advice on little-care plants. Deepest blue lobelias, another beauty, on the other hand will not take direct sun well in hot areas. Our wrought iron hanging baskets thus make a great home for lobelias because it's so easy to move hanging baskets around. If your lobelias do dry out, trim them back and wait out the heat.

One question that often puzzles gardeners about using a hanging planter is how some hanging baskets grow to be so very full and cascade so very far. Snap up a couple of our wrought iron hanging baskets and coir liners, grab some gloves and a large screwdriver and you, too, can create this magic fullness. Place the coir liner in the basket, and place it on a table or other flat surface. You're going to poke planting holes with your screwdriver. Based on the planting distance guide to your lower plants, poke holes through the coir liner. Many expert gardeners go a bit closer than recommendations because they tend to be for plants in the ground that will complete filling in over two or three years, so for rich fullness in your hanging baskets, take off an inch or two. When your screwdriver is through the coir liner, rotate your screwdriver around the edge to enlarge it. It works well to have your plants at hand - poke them through the hole. When done, add soil inside and plant the higher layer or layers of foliage or flowers you want. Hang and water. Container plants like a houseplant fertilizer every couple of weeks, so give them a great start with some. Liquids that you just add to your watering can are the easiest.
