How to Build a Planter for Pansies
Time Required: Under 2 hours
Showcase a unique display of color in your yard by combining two hanging baskets to create a spherical planter. Fill your planter with beautiful pansies to usher in the fall and reuse a few months down the road with colorful annuals to celebrate spring.
Thanks to Home Depot Community associates Jennifer Scott and Maureen Follen for designing and making our project.
Fill both of the lined planters with soil, watering as you go. It’s important to keep the soil thoroughly moist, as that will help hold it in place when you link the two baskets. Water once more when baskets are completely filled.
Water weekly, if not daily, depending on where you live. For best results, water slowly from the top so all plants have a chance to absorb the water. Do not be discouraged if your pansies look a little limp at first — fertilize as instructed on the label and soon they will be flourishing in their new home!
