Cardboard Gardening Project: Hanging Basket

Post by Sonshine on Tue Mar 27, 2012 3:31 am

Last year while testing Cardboard Gardening, we put together a panel of family and friends to give it a try. My wonderful aunt, Cherry Bibler, lives in Washington state, and she graciously volunteered to help us out. (She’s a GREAT gardener, too!)

Cherry wanted to see if she could turn an old fruit box into a hanging basket of sorts, so she put together this wonderful how-to. I’m really impressed with how it turned out; I think it looks great, especially with keeping the box all natural. Here’s how she did it:

That's really neat Sonshine. I wonder if you could do something like for herbs?

I don't see why not. I would imagine anything that you can grow in a pot would work. Personally, I don't do well with potted plants. I kill the everytime. I think I either over water them or don't water them enough. I don't know when they need transplanting. Whatever causes it, I just don't do well with them. Growing plants outside though I am usually pretty successful.

Miss Lillia, with your lack of space, this might be beneficial to you. I've heard of people producing quite a bit of produce from container gardening.

You are right, Sonshine. There are many people who are growing food now on vertical surfaces because of lack of space.

As far as containers go, it is actually quite amazing what you can grow.
The beans we grew in a big pot, did better than the ones we grew in the ground. Our carrots (seeds right now) are in a plastic tote that someone discarded. I always have my eyes open for something to serve as a container.

You have made me realize though, that I don't need an actual hanging basket (I have only one). I may just try the cardboard idea, or juice containers and be as clever as I can with it. Being frugal AND resourceful go hand-in-hand. Smile

Miss Lillia, if you do try the cardboard idea I would love to hear what kind of results you get from it.
