It's "hotter than the Fourth of July" outside in South Texas this week. Even with the heat there's still time complete a few gardening projects in the mornings when the weather is a cool 78F. When I posted about my patriotic wreath for Independence Day, I mentioned Dichondra Silver Falls had reached the porch and needed to be transplanted. It could have gone straight into the garden but I had a better idea gleaned from Pinterest.
A hanging basket with a difference. Instead of draping it over the sides, try running it through the bottom of the basket. Something like this.
That part went pretty well. The basket should be hanging up while doing this and a bucket to catch soil and other debris is useful. I lined the wire basket with bird netting before adding moss to keep the moss and soil from falling through the basket wires. The netting disappears when the moss is added.
Now what to put in the top basket? Squid Agave (Agave bracteosa) of course!
Maybe it is too hot out there.....
