A house with hanging baskets will always stand out. That splash of color at eye level immediately attracts attention and it’s amazing just how many flowers will grow successfully in this situation.

There are several ideas that I had not come across before and a few surprises too. I found this list on the Balcony Garden Web site.

A variety of flowers and plants can be grown in hanging baskets. The choice of plants in baskets depends on both the size of the basket and the growing conditions where the basket has to be placed. The baskets, which are kept in the shade and less windy space are easier to look after as they require less watering.
