Repurposed Vegetable Holder hanging basket

5.3K
I turned my vegetable holder/hanging basket (that I NEVER used and had been hanging in my kitchen empty for several months) into a hanging 3 level planter. I put several different types of mostly indoor plants (pothos, regular and variegated) that I had rooted in water from when I had cut back my plants, but also added 3 different varieties of potato vine, purple, yellow, and variegated, and a jew, as i will leave it hanging outside til winter. I hope you enjoy, as I know I enjoyed the project, and will enjoy watching it grow!

    I really like your idea! How do you keep water from running through when you water the plants? Thanks in advance.

    What a great idea. These are sold pretty cheap at our dollar store-wonder if one might be strong enough?

    Thanks... so far, its holding strong...I figured, it held some pretty heavy veggies at one time, but if I need to reinforce it i can....but I did start with only about halfway filling it to the top of each basket, maybe 3/4's of the way.....the water does run through, and I like that...I just water carefully, starting at the top, and see how much will drain to the next one, then I water the next one, and so on. If I like it enough, at the end of summer, when I need to bring it in, I will redo it, and get the deep see-thru liners maybe to put inside them?? just thinking so far....

    @Angela, I was thinking along the same lines- transparent plant saucers.
