Custom Built Frame for Hanging Planters

As part of my ongoing patio garden project, I am always looking how to maximize available space, but also keeping it aesthetically pleasing at the same time. I made the frame from rough sawn timber and nailed to the raised bed using galvanised nails.

I don’t have a greenhouse so I chose some outdoor tomatoes and decided to experiment with the JML Topsy Turvy Upside Down Tomato Planter, which I picked up in a local low cost store.

I chose a hanging planter for strawberries made of eco-friendly felt and non-woven fabric material. I could have planted the strawberries in a floor standing planter, but I wanted to see how if it would work by hanging them and also to free up patio space so that it doesn’t become too cluttered.

The other part of using this hanger frame is that I can add some style and nice features, such as the solar powered lanterns that light up at dusk. I used some low cost S hooks for this.
