Hanging Garden Baskets

The Best Plants to Grow in Hanging Garden Baskets

If you’re looking for a new and creative way to grow plants, hanging garden baskets are a great choice. You’ll find a range of beautiful baskets at our handmade gifts shop so you can enjoy growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers in a fun new way. Here are some of the best plants to grow in hanging garden baskets for a bountiful harvest.

Herbs

From basil to cilantro, you can grow herbs in hanging garden baskets for a fun way to add flavor to your favorite dishes. Most herbs enjoy full sun, so make sure you hang your basket in an area that will get lots of sunlight throughout the day. Mint is an excellent choice for hanging baskets. Make sure you fill it with plenty of compost to start, then add your dirt and seeds or small plants before you hang it in the sunshine. Water your herbs regularly and enjoy bountiful flavors all year round.

Peas

Most peas grow in the ground and require some kind of support to keep them stabilized. However, you can also grow them in a hanging basket so that your fresh peas grow in a downward direction instead. Dwarf and snow peas are two great options for hanging containers. Always place your peas in a sunny area since they enjoy lots of natural light. Once the peas are ripe, harvest them quickly, so the plant will continue to produce more.

Lettuce and Salad Greens

Choose a basket from our handmade gifts shop and get ready to enjoy a delicious fresh salad. Lettuce and other salad greens do quite well in hanging baskets, especially since they will be elevated and away from pests that tend to snack on them when they grow on the ground. Pick a soil mix that has hummus in it to encourage green, lush growth. You can mix and match different types of lettuce in your basket for a colorful, deliciously fresh salad.
