Here’s a few more inspirations from the 2013 Garden Bloggers Fling in San Francisco.
This first one has it roots in my 2005 neighborhood garden tour. These homeowners fashioned their own wire baskets filled with various plants and hung to trees around their pool.
I was so excited when I saw the wire baskets being sold at Flora Grubb, they seemed perfect to re-create this idea that I had seen so many years earlier. Below is my basket planted with a bromeliad and hanging on a palm next to my pool.
Below is a close-up of the basket. I was so excited to get it planted, I didn’t take any pictures of it while it was empty.
My other purchase from Flora Grubb was a couple of these planters.
I think they are made from palm tree trunks, but I’m not positive about that. Here are my two in their new home.
