Buying hanging basket kits

Hanging Basket Kits

Buying hanging basket kit is an easy and economical way to get hanging baskets.

In kit form the postage is very economical, if the baskets were made up the postage
value is more than the cost of the basket and sometimes the liner combined.

I have been making these hanging baskets for quite a long time, selling them at the local markets,
eg Eumundi and Caboolture, in south east Qld. When I became too busy to go to the markets,
I discovered leaving them in the deconstructed mode was the best way to transport them.
And most people can work out how to put them together.

They take me approximately 10 minutes to put together, others find it takes them 1/2hour and others need a friend.

 

You need

 

 

 

 

 

 

a pair of pliers, maybe a screwdriver – if you make a mistake
And a pair of gardening gloves is handy – the pliers can pinch – ouch!!

Ohh, and plenty of space to spread the parts out.

The base –

How to assemble the basket kits

How to assemble the hanging basket kits
Videos

These are a couple of videos I have done so far.
The basket kits aren’t hard to assemble once you understand the system.

All the sizes are multiples of 8, and the sides are basically a basket weave – over one then under next, then over again.
Keeping the rhythm all the way round till they come together.
