Hanging a Window Garden

This is just a short post to show you how to make sure your window garden doesn't hang/lean forward.  I've hung window baskets before but they've all kind of leaned forward and dumped out some of the soil and looked bad.  Here's a little trick that my father-in-law showed me.

Hold up your basket and mark where you want it to hang.  If yours is like mine, it will slide over your screws.  

Go ahead and screw in your screws and hang your basket .

Then place a small section of 2x4 between your basket and the wall.  Make sure you have it where it supports the basket.

Add your coconut mesh back in your basket and add soil and whatever pretty flowers you want. Then sit back and enjoy.

It doesn't look like much now but, the flowers that are in there will spread out over time.  I may add some more flowers later.
