Your fruit and veg might be tasty but how about making it look good too? Joyce Russell shows you how with this simple-to-make rustic hanging basket
Pictures: Ben Russell


Some gardeners grow plants that are decorative; others aim to grow plants that taste really good.There’s no reason why a garden shouldn’t have some of both, of course, and many gardens are delightful mixtures of trees, shrubs, flowers, fruits and vegetables. For small spaces, plants may have to double up: they must not only taste good, but also look beautiful…and if they can tuck themselves out of the way while they are at it, then that just about covers all requirements.

This lovely hanging basket is easy to make and perfect for growing tomatoes or strawberries. It holds a large volume of compost, so plants aren’t starved or dried out before they get to crop at their best. It looks lovely when filled with plants and it will produce a good crop of fruits to grace the summer table.
