Our little Annika couldn’t get enough of these hanging baskets. She was toting her toys around all morning when we were figuring out where to hang them, it was adorable. They were our base when decorating the back porch. We knew we wanted ferns and love all the other fillers flowers and plants that were added to accessorize our outdoor bar cart.
How to hang hanging planters.
We used a cup hook to hang the planters from the porch ceiling. We pre-drilled it with a small bit then cranked it into place. We looped the hook from the bottom planter into the bottom of the top planter to create a double hanging planter. The Asparagus Fern is so pretty weeping over the edges.

We then filled our painted bar cart up with old assorted pots. We filled them with sedum succulents, a gorgeous succulent bouquet that we took apart plus our favorite string of pearls, so pretty! We also filled galvanized tins with weeping boston ferns and love how full one pick is, a lot of bang for your buck!

The Best Outdoor Hanging Plants for Spring/Summer
Looking for which hanging plants will best suite your space for spring and summer? Tassel ferns are perfect for filling large spaces on porches or patios, and they work great in multiples along with Marble Queen Pothos, Kalanchoe, Spiky Blue Gray Hair Grass, Eastern Hay-Scented Fern, Begonia and Staghorn Ferns.
How often do you need to water hanging baskets?
Keep in mind that hanging plants tend to dry out faster so water them daily or at least take a peek at them every morning. A good rule of thumb is to water your hanging plants when the soil surface becomes dry to the touch. Apply water until it begins to flow out the bottom of the container.
