A quick and easy way to re vamp hanging baskets – with spring hopefully around the corner –
After a year or so in the garden hanging basket/wall basket liner can get a bit worn. Best to re new it before plants are affected. I have been using odds and ends of geotextile to re line my wall baskets or to reinforce not quite fully worn ones.
Geotextile is an alternative to buying a hessian or plastic liner. It is a bonded material that is used for many things in the garden; but also suited to a basket liner due to its filtration properties and its structure that means it should last a longer time than a usual hessian liner.
- First do you have a place to store the soil/plants still in your hanging/wall basket?? Remove the old liner possibly add it to your compost pile if its biodegradable.
2. Roughly place the geotextile into the basket
4.Secure into the basket; this will probably needed if basket is in a windy place.
5.Fill with soil about 2/3 rds way
6.Now decide where plants will go
8.Now fill with a little more soil and secure plants in place
9.Now re hang and enjoy
Geotextile membrane is usually white so it does give you a different colour in the garden.
