Hanging Birdbath Planter



Step 1: Cut the handles from two plastic Lowe’s bags and both sides of each bag to form flat plastic sheets. Press them against the coconut-fibre liner to help retain moisture. Trim away the surplus around the liner rim.

Step 2: Centre the clay pot upside down in the basket. Surround the pot with soil or potting mix and insert the plants of your choice close to the rim. We used a mix of flowering lantana and sweet potato vines.

Step 3: Add the chain to the basket and hang the planter where you can reach it daily to water the plants and fill the birdbath. Centre the saucer on the overturned pot, fill it with water, and water the plants at the same time.
