Found this on another website, it's million bells, creeping jenny, and licorice plant. How do you think this is made? Do you think it's just a regular hanging pot loaded with these plants, or do you think it's one of those hanging baskets that you plant the top, sides, and bottom - coconut lining or whatever that stuff is? I am on a mission this year to have FULL hanging baskets like this instead of straggly ones! Help!

Looks like it's all coming from the top. Does your husband have a saw hole kit? If so just put it in your drill and cut out your own side holes in a cheap basket and stuff with plants.

These baskets are all planted in a single pot,you plant the starts when they are small and then they will grow and fill in.I have the front of my apt. full of five baskets ,three of them fuschias and the others are mixed.I also went out and bot some wavy petunias I am going to plant and hang all in colors to attract the hummers....

I think it is one basket. I have a hanging pot of million bells that has really spread since planted and has made a pretty full basket rather quickly. It is just in a regular hanging plastic container. But, this year I bought 3 of those wire hanging baskets with the coconut liner. First time I ever tried it and they look pretty good. I thought that the liner would help retain water, but it seems that the water drains through pretty fast when I water it. I was just tired of the same ole same ole.
One more thing...I just started putting a lot of peat/spagnum moss in my baskets and comparing with the others. I think I will continue with this method.
