I came up with this idea last year when I needed an easy way to line some old egg wire baskets I have. I’ve used the coco lined wire baskets before, but our climate here is very hot and dry during the summertime and I would have to water them pretty much daily to keep whatever I had growing in them from withering. The cotton pillowcase allows the soil to drain, but doesn’t dry out real fast.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this wire basket flower container:
Egg Wire Basket (doesn’t have to be an egg basket; any wire basket will work)
Potting Soil (I like moisture control potting soil with fertilizer already added in the mix)
Flowers, or whatever you want to grow!
Add fertilizer if you didn’t use a potting soil with fertilizer already mixed in, water, and enjoy your new plant container! 🙂
