Hanging Basket Planter

An old, or new, vegetable/fruit hanging basket in the "trio" style is such a cute way to pot summer plants.  I made this one a couple of years ago.  The most difficult part is cutting and wiring in the coconut matt.  I cut my pieces and wedged and pushed them into place then used wire to push through and twist to hold the matt in place.  It has worked great!  The first year I had Ivy in the top basket so it would trail down.  This year I chose to use Begonias since they handle shaded area of my porch well.
