How to hang a hanging basket


Posted 27th Jan 2012

A fully planted basket can be surprisingly heavy to support - especially one that’s just been watered. Therefore, it's essential that the bracket holding your hanging basket is securely attached to the wall.

Directions
Mark the fixing holes in pencil and check they are vertical with a spirit level. Drill into the brick, not the mortar.
Insert the correct size wall plugs for the hole and screws. Fix the bracket to the wall and check that it is firmly attached.
Hang the basket to the bracket using the chains supplied.

Tips
Hang baskets well above head height to avoid accidents, and consider installing a pulley system to raise and lower them - this will make baskets easier to care for.
