Plant Hangers for a Hanging Garden
Plant hangers must be an option to consider if you’re living in a flat or apartment with just a balcony’s worth of space to indulge your love of gardening. The same idea of using plant hangers works brilliantly if you’ve only got a tiny piece of green, a small slice of garden in a crowed urban area. Moving up in the world has a whole new meaning if you use plant hangers to lift your plants and flowers to decorate walls and fences.
It is amazing how just a little connection with nature can lift your mood too. Whether it’s seeds germinating and young green shoots poking through the compost in window boxes or flower pots, or going down to your garden centre to buy your favourite selection of plants for hanging baskets or adding a few plant hangers to hold flower pots onto patio walls, fences or posts, – all ways to brighten your day with the hopeful expectation of long summer days on the horizon.
Now, I can see the attraction of hanging baskets. They can look amazing, full of a variety of plants and flowers that go together with summer living. The only thing I would say is that it can take quite some time to create that effect. Hanging flowers and plants with Spanish Rings creates instant colour.
On the other hand if you add plant hangers to the garden you enhance the overall impact and single plants in flowerpots give you a change to use your own creativity to produce a picture that is an expression of your own personality. The other advantage is that if you live in a place that has a short growing season you can quickly add colour to enjoy immediately.
Plant hangers are the solution, especially as you can change the planting with the changing seasons – any summer bedding can be brought inside while hardy evergreens, ferns and winter pansies take over.
