Let me start this post by saying- if I can do it, anyone can! I do not have a green thumb, whatsoever, and always end up killing the hardiest of plants. But I do have a pretty cool trick to share with you today, that I learned from my neighbor. A couple years ago, I was outside in the garden, trying to figure out what to plant and how to do it. I looked over at my neighbor's flower pots, and they were these beautiful, cascading flowers that looked like they had been there for years. I finally asked, 'what is your trick?' The easy solution was buying overflowing, hearty hanging baskets, placing them inside her urns and cutting off the hanging plastic part. (That's it??) The urns would already have some potting soil in them, but she didn't even take the flowers out of the basket. You just place them in there, cut off the top, and you're done! Here is my version, bought just last week:
And to think, it just started out as hanging baskets! Am I the last one to find out about this cool trick?? Now if I can just find a way to keep the rabbits from eating the flowers, we'll be good! Any tips on that???
