How to create your own beautiful Hanging Garden


If you want to add more greenery to your home, but don’t have a lot of space, consider a hanging garden. You can use a variety of plants or flowers—some that even flower indoors—and they’re easy to assemble.

Identify plants that will thrive.

  • Choose plants that are native to your area.
  • Choose plants that don’t need a lot of water.
  • Choose plants that are hardy, meaning they can tolerate the weather in your area—or at least survive for a few months.
  • Choose plants that are easy to care for by yourself if you’re not an experienced gardener (this is important).
  • Choose attractive, low maintenance plants that will look good hanging from above or standing on their own feet on the ground (also important).

Decide where to hang the garden.

Once you’ve decided where to hang your garden, it’s time to consider how. The easiest thing to do is just tie a piece of string around a nail and hang the plants from that. But what if you want something more stylish?

The first thing most people want are hooks – lots of them! This is because hooks allow for easy access, watering and pruning. You can also make sure that any soil or water will run down rather than pooling at the bottom – which could lead to rot!

Keep in mind the height of your plants.

It’s important to consider the height of your plants. Your Hanging Garden should be approximately 2 feet off the ground and you want to be able to see it from inside your home. This height is perfect for hanging baskets, hanging pots and other containers with flowers or vegetables growing in them. You don’t want to hang them too high or they won’t get enough sunlight (this will cause them to wilt) but you also don’t want to hang them too low or they may get too much sun and get burned

Choose containers.

  • Choose containers that are the right size. This is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when creating your hanging garden. You need to choose a container that’s large enough for your plants to grow, but small enough to keep it from weighing too much and falling down from its hanging spot.
  • Choose containers that are easy to clean. The last thing you want is a big mess on your hands (or in this case, hanging from the ceiling). Hanging gardens should be simple and easy-to-maintain so that you can spend more time enjoying them than cleaning them! Look for pots with drainage holes at the bottom so water doesn’t stay trapped inside them and cause mold or mildew issues later down the line when things get even dirtier than they already were due to constant watering every few days during hot summer months after moving indoors during winter months while still trying not forget about how much fun it was having friends over last summer before getting back into school again right after Thanksgiving break ended up being longer than expected because everyone went snowboarding instead……….

Drill holes in the bottom of pots for drainage.

  • Drill holes in the bottom of pots for drainage.
  • Place the pot on top of a plastic sheet, and use a pencil to trace around its circumference. Cut out two circles from the sheet using scissors or tin snips, taking care not to create any sharp edges inside your traced circle.
  • Make sure that you have at least one hole per square inch of soil surface area being used, but no more than three or four (depending on how much water your hanging garden will receive).

To help plants grow, fill each container with a mixture of soil and fertilizer.

To help plants grow, fill each container with a mixture of soil and fertilizer. Fertilizer is a mixture of nutrients that plants need in order to grow. It can be purchased at most hardware stores. There are many different types and brands, so you should do some research before buying the product you think will be best for your garden. Some fertilizers only have one type of nutrient in them, while others have several different nutrients combined into one product. You should choose whatever fertilizer suits your needs best based on the type of plants you want to grow in your hanging garden and how much time you want to spend maintaining it!

Water regularly. Take advantage of drip irrigation systems if you think you’ll have a hard time remembering to water often!

The most important part of creating a successful hanging garden is watering it regularly. If you want to make things easier on yourself, look into purchasing a drip irrigation system that allows you to set up your plants (and therefore the water supply) in advance. Alternatively, if you don’t mind remembering to water every day or so, use an old hose with a shut-off valve and timer on it; just turn it off when you’re done!


A hanging garden can be a great way to add some color to your space and even help you save on water by not having to use as much. Just remember that these plants require more sunshine than ground-level ones do, so keep them in a sunny spot!
