Geraniums in a Galvanized Mop Bucket
I fell in love with these ginormous geranium hanging baskets today at the greenhouse. I replanted it in an old mop bucket. It will be nice to be able to wheel it into the garage when a freeze is predicted (like every other night). I discovered this trick for a few years ago for an instant beautiful planter. The greenhouse near me has these hanging baskets for $10 and they contain about 5 plants that are full grown and beautiful. It is cheaper to buy one of these than to buy 5 separate plants (that aren't quite so big and beautiful). Since hanging baskets don't work for me (too windy and hot here) I always replant them into a large planter for instant pizazz. With added dirt and a larger container they don't dry out so fast like they do in those little baskets.
