Hanging Flower Baskets

Hanging flower baskets are effective in balcony settings where the space is a premium or to add height in courtyard or pergola settings. If you are interested in deck rail planters, click here.

There is a variety of hanging flower baskets on the market, ranging from plastic to wooden hanging flower baskets. It is always best to buy flower pots with a related theme eg terracotta urns matching with terracotta-plastic hanging planters.

Wall Planters

Added tips :

  • Make sure you attach the hanging flower basket at a level which is convenient for you (the main plant carer) so that maintenance chores like fertilizing and watering can be performed easily. The easier you make it for yourself, the more likely you are to perform them! There’s no point getting your six foot hubby to attach the hanging flower basket for you only to find that you can’t reach it later on for watering and fertilizing without having the services of a chair or ladder!
  • Hanging flower baskets are more exposed so would therefore need more frequent watering.
  • If you are attaching a wall hanging planter onto a brick wall, special wall plugs would be needed for the screw to secure the wall hanging planter onto the wall. When securing it onto a wooden surface, be sure that the wooden panel can take the weight of the planter (with the soil and plant inside) – terracotta planters weigh a lot more than their plastic relatives!
