This kit contains the empty moss lined half basket measuring 14" across, 9" from top to bottom, and 9" from front to back. You will also receive at least 75 cuttings of various sizes, shapes, and plant varieties. This will be more than enough to plant the front of your basket.
Planting the basket is easy....use an old chopstick, knitting needle, letter opener, etc. to make small holes in the basket for your cuttings. Use your own creativity for the design and layout for planting. Leave the basket flat while these cuttings take root, usually 3-4 weeks. Once ready, you can plant the top opening of the basket and hang your creation! (there are 2 metal loops on the back for hanging) For the top, you can purchase potted succulents from your local garden center, or fill with soil and contact us to purchase another 8-10 cuttings to fill that area.
The finished photos show a half basket that has been planted for approximately 8 weeks. It is filling in very nicely. You can take cuttings from this basket as it grows and plant them in pots or directly in your garden.
