Edible hanging baskets
August 17, 2010 § Leave a comment
I have been experimenting with edible hanging baskets. The plugs we grow make poking them through the moss walls so easy I really enjoy making them.
Here are the first two attempts:
This one has Red Russian kale, Salad Bowl lettuce, Flame lettuce, lobelia and some pink things from M&S. It looked very pretty for about two months but it had to be fed daily and watered twice a day on the hottest days.
Note the hanging basket liner- fronds from any pine/conifer type tree. When picked fresh they are nice and bendy and smell good. After three odd weeks the fronds will dry out and turn a coppery brown colour. When the baskets are finished the whole lot liner and all can be put on the compost.
