Hanging Baskets

June 22nd, 2015

I love hanging baskets, but I really dislike spending money on them each year. While we were at Longwood Gardens last week I spotted these beauties.

Spider plants make beautiful hanging baskets and could easily be overwintered in the basement or other parts of the house. Spider plants are extremely beneficial for cleaning indoor air so they would be great to have indoors during the winter months. I might have to try growing a hanging basket like this.

Do you have hanging baskets in your garden? What’s your favorite plant to use?
