I have a penchant for hanging baskets, especially those filled with petunias. When my husband and I go away to celebrate our anniversary each year, we stay in the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth. Every where we go, we find hanging baskets overflowing with petunias...I love it, and I would love to create a little of this look here at our nest!
BUT...have you seen the price tag on most of these baskets? (Yowzy!) Besides that, the containers themselves are nothing to write home about! SO...on my last trip to Lowe's, (how I love that store!) I found a basket I liked:
I put a little potting soil on the bottom, and added some white petunias, leaving some room for growth.
I added more potting soil around the flowers, and officially made my own hanging basket! Petunias spread quickly, so I know that soon this container will be overflowing with flowers!
And the cost?
About $3.00~ flowers
And some potting soil I had on hand.
I am very happy with the cost AND the way it turned out! I am going to be making more of these!
I'm eventually going to put it above the back porch, but here it is by the front door for now. It is hanging up way too high, I know! Most of what you see is the basket itself, but I wanted to show a picture of it hung up, even if it's just its temporary home!
I hope this finds you doing well! Thank you so much for stopping by!
