Hang-a-Pot

I posted about my pots that hang on my fence last Summer. {you can see that post here}


My first summer's pots 

Last summer's pots

What I didn't share with you is how you can do this project at your house!

All you need are some terra cotta pots, spray paint/chalkboard paint, and these...

Pot holders being fastened

They are called "hang-a-pots" and you can order them from their website.
They are super easy to install and work with!  I know you'll love them!

Now that my pots are chalkboard (and perfect for labeling) I'm thinking about planting herbs and having my very own herb garden...any advice?!

This is a great idea! I think I may have to "steal" it, though I am thinking strawberries will go in mine. An herb garden is a great idea too. I would put the tall plants at the top (dill, cilantro) and any cascading ones on the bottom (thyme, oregano) with things like chives or sage in the middle. Visiting from I heart nap time.

Love it - especially the chalkboard version!
Herbs are simple - just need plenty of sun and water.

I love the idea of an herb garden. Ours was out of control, but in these pots it would be so much more organized. Plus the labels would help knowing what each one is. Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays. Stop back tonight (Thursday) for a bloglovin blog hop. If your unfamiliar with bloglovin you can find out all about it at www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com/2012/02/i-heart-bloglovin.html.

These are so adorable. I have been wanting to do some kind of planters and these will be good from my dogs trying to eat my plants.

I live in a very dry place so the plants have to be hardy. I have sedum on my fence and love it!
