This is a tough transition time in the garden; not cool enough yet for the colorful mums, pumpkins, ornamental cabbage and gourds, yet you want to keep some garden interest going in the meantime. This weekend, I went to a garage sale and bought two baskets for $1.50 and decided to make flower baskets for my fence.
Pretty simple project really. First, I put two nails in the fence post to hang the baskets. Then I lined the baskets with black and white newspaper sheets and filled them with Moisture Control soil. Fall pansies went into the smaller basket and Plectranthus into the larger one. Some watering and the project was finished.
Now there is a pretty pop of color on the fence of our side yard. Quick, easy and inexpensive, my favorite kind of DIY!
And I just could not resist, setting up one more fall display of pretty yellow pansies in a basket!
