If you’re short on space and are looking for an easy way to increase your gardening yield, hanging baskets are the way forward. They can be hung outdoors or indoors. Just bear in mind that you’ll get drips on the surface underneath them when you water them. Bathrooms and kitchen windowsills are good places to hang them as you can simply wipe them clean afterwards, though you may prefer to grow carrots and radishes rather than fruit and veg that’s exposed to the air in the bathroom.
There are loads of gorgeous hanging basket designs to choose from, ranging from as little as £1, and you can grow lots of different things in them. They work well with strawberries and tomatoes (particularly tumbling ones). You can hang one in the kitchen filled with herbs designed for cooking (basil, chives, parsley). You can also create a cocktail making hanging basket including mint, lemon balm and coriander. Of course, you could use a hanging basket for flowers but that seems like a waste to me (unless they’re edible flowers, of course).
The downside of hanging baskets is that they do take a lot of watering, and if they’re outdoors, you still have to keep an eye out for slugs and snails because they can climb. However, you can minimise these risks by adding moisture control gel to your compost and putting copper tape around the edge or base of your hanging basket, as slugs don’t like crawling over it (and it’s a child/pet-safe way to protect your plants from slugs). Other than that it’s easy.
