Keeping plants alive


I’ve been keeping myself amused making hanging planters which I’m loving due to the combo of the ceramic pot, the plant and the material I use to hang them with.

There’s been quite a bit of trial and error – I found my favourite black and white hanging elastic absorbed all the water from the plant and stained it a brown colour. Not good.


I’ve also been experimenting with the type of plants which work in an indoor setting without drainage holes. Most succulents do well near windows so imagine if you will my house 2 weeks out from a market stall. Every window has two or three plants hanging around it. My bathroom has various airplants happily growing in low(ish) light and hopefully all these plants will flourish in time to find new homes.


If you’re keen to get some more plants into your home/office/man-cave/she-lair or are looking for a fun present drop by the Maker’s Market in Thirroul on Sun 16th Nov from 12 at Anita’s Theatre and get ready to be bamboozled with choice!
