How to Choose the Best Hanging Planter

Hanging flower baskets look great in many locations. Take your time when making a selection. There are many styles and materials to choose from. Knowing your requirements before you start shopping will save time, prevent frustration, and best of all, save money. Follow these tips for choosing the best planter:
  1. Decide what the container will hold. Large displays require large baskets.
  1. Determine the location. Choose a stable structure that can hold the weight of the planted basket.
  1. Choose a style. The style you settle on will depend on the following:
    • The plant(s) that will reside in the container.
    • The location you choose for the container.
    • The design and style of your garden, landscape, or home.
  1. Choose a material that will complement your landscape as well as the style of your home.

Caring for Hanging Plant Containers

Caring for planters properly will keep plants healthy and ensure the container lasts as long as possible.

  • When planting these containers, choose plants with similar care and growing requirements.
  • Be sure to water and fertilize frequently. Water drains out of the bottom of the basket, taking some of the nutrients with it.
  • For wire baskets, use natural fiber liners (coco, coir, or moss). Add a plastic liner inside the natural liner. Remember to poke holes for drainage.
  • When planted, hanging plant containers are heavy. Before you hang the basket, be sure the structure can hold the weight.
