Hanging Basket in September

It may be late in the season, but there’s still plenty of flowering plants to fill a basket. Container planting is infinitely adaptable and, the smaller the space, the larger a part it plays. A hanging basket is the ultimate space-saver, filling a third dimension with ephemeral displays that can be regularly swapped over to ensure an unbroken succession of colour throughout the seasons. A vintage basket provides a welcome alternative to the rather limited range of standard hanging baskets. Bought at a car boot sale, this woven wicker shopping basket creates a lovely focal point, either suspended from a hook, or resting casually somewhere in the garden.
