It is also very easy to make hanging flower baskets. Purchase a normal mesh basket and line it with natural fiber liner before adding soil. Attach three wires to secure it to the wall bracket. Use potting soil to fill up the pots, and make sure that there is a hole in the bottom of the pot for drainage.
You can create a bold display by putting flowers in bright colors, together--like hot-pink geraniums and bright-yellow swan river daisies. If you want mellow, pastel-colored blooms, then choose flowers such as verbena and wax begonias.
Selecting the Right Location
After selecting the flowers that you want to plant, you have to determine where to place the pots. The columns in your balcony are great for installing these pots. Always make sure that the hanging pots are placed high enough, so that you do not bump your head into them.
They should not be hung in entryways. You should make sure that you secure the bracket or chain of the pot to a stud. However, the stud has to be able to bear the weight of the pot, as well as the soil and plant inside. If you decide to place these flower pots inside your home, you can hang them from a bracket secured to the wall.
