A hanging basket is a wonderful way to add brightness, fragrance and colour to even the smallest garden or balcony. They are easy to make and look after, and will provide you with something pleasant to look at throughout the warmer months, and possibly into autumn and winter as well. Almost anything can be planted in a hanging basket, including fruit and vegetables, but most people want something vibrant and colourful to look at and choose to fill their hanging basket with flowers. Plus, if the basket is at head height, the flowers’ fragrance can be particularly effective. Image credit: www.aphotoathought.blogspot.co.uk
