Hi

Has anyone ever tried to grow plants in two hanging baskets joined together?

If you wire them up to make a ball then plant busy lizzies or aother annuals they are said to give a great show. I have seen ones with alpines in that look very good all year.

Has anyone done this and got a photo to show.

Cheers

Ian

Oh shoulds interesting, but how would you water it? I suppose when constucting it you could use an old metal coat hanger, to join the two baskets together and insert an old plactic bottle to allow you to water it. I might give this a go, id say it would look amazing, it really would be a hanging ball of flowers.

I have a book with photos illustrating how it is done, the worded explanation is a bit confusing ~I was going to re type it all here.

If you want I will photocopy it and post it on to you, just pm your details.
