Hanging basket gardens are common even if you aren’t stuck in an apartment. Using your space wisely is just a good practice. Porches and patios are ideal spaces for a hanging plant. Even if they aren’t a food production variety, they can be used to add a bit of life to vertical spaces.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Plant it using any method that is organic or better.
You do not need to make the hanging system yourself.
Pot a hanging basket or other hanging plant system.
Monitor the growth of the plant.
To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Show the materials prior to potting
- Show the fully potted plant hanging
- Show the plant after it has increased in size/growth
