Our custom basket is made from long-lasting hardwood slats that are notched log-cabin style and strung together with galvanized wire. The basket provides ideal drainage when used with normal potting soil. Perfect for our Hanging Basket Begonias or trailing plants of any kind, including Petunias and Verbenas. Some folks detach the chains and use the basket as a planter, which is fine, too. Basket measures about 12in square at the top and 6 1/2in tall, with a base about 8in square. Chains in each corner are 23in long and attach to a 2in hook.
