Throw away your coco basket liners and learn to make hanging baskets the “Longwood way!” James will show you step-by-step how to top- and side-plant a 14-inch metal basket with sphagnum moss, soil, and bedding plants to achieve a beautiful sphere. A hidden water reservoir inside your basket will ensure easy watering for stunning results. A PowerPoint slide show will offer ideas, show you how to build your basket, and provide tips on caring for your plants.
Bring gardening gloves if you care to use them. The finished basket is quite heavy. We’ll help you load it into your car, but you may need help unloading it at home.
