5 Simple Tips To Create Beautiful Hanging Flower Containers

Every year around Mother’s Day I plant all my pot and hanging containers. This was my Mother’s Day gift from my husband when the kids were small. I could go out and buy lots of flowers and plant them all weekend long. It was quite and treat and a wonderful creative outlet. Over the years I’ve found a few tricks and some favorites that work well in hanging containers so that we can have beautiful planters all season long.

The above gallery shows some of my favorites.  They all have a nice bushy habit that trails nicely in a hanging container. Many come in a range of colors to suit your preference.

Other good options are ivy geraniums, nasturtiums and sweet potato vine.
