There’s nothing like homegrown fruits and vegetables and at this time of year fresh produce is abundant in Montreal! Being in the framing business I never thought that I’d be posting about gardens but I’m here to tell you how a common frame can quickly and easily be turned into a hanging planter!
With so many benefits of having a garden, I want my family to get their hands dirty! This season, we couldn’t quite decide on a permanent location for our garden so opted for a small selection of potted berries and vegetables. Our potted green beans grew quickly and I needed to either get large poles to have the vines grow up (not the safest for the kiddos) or come up with an alternate solution. After combing through the Internet, I found this great idea that allows me to keep my beans in their existing pot while growing healthy vegetables that are easy to harvest and looks attractive! http://eslamoda.com/ideas-chic-para-agregar-plantas-tu-habitacion
Here’s what you’ll need:
-Frame big enough to fit your pot securely without falling through
1. Cut 4 pieces of twine in equal length (Note: To decide the length of your pieces, fold in half and stretch out. This will be how long your planter hangs down from the tree or where ever you’re hanging it.)
2. Fold each length of twine in half and knot each around a corner of the frame
3. Gather the loose ends of all twine and tie together in a secure, large knot
4. Attach your S hook to your large knot and hang
Now you have a perfect garden planter for flowers, herbs or vegetables! Our green bean vines will start to hang over the planter making it easy to harvest those delicious beans!
