DIY Edible Flower Basket from Southern Living

Hey, Guys! I made a DIY Flower Edible Basket from Southern Living magazine. (Ok, so the basket isn’t edible–the plant’s are.) Wink, wink!



First I gathered all my materials:

– Basket from Lowes
– Peat moss
– Slow-release fertilizer from the Enchanted Forest
– Plants from Enchanted Forest

Directions:

supplies for hanging basket

I filled my basket with the peat moss up to a couple of inches from the basket’s rim.

I sprinkled in the slow-release fertilizer.

And mixed it in.

I put in the purple cabbage first.

Then the pansies.

And added the cilantro.

I watered it really well…

And there you go! An edible fall Basket!
