Carmen Johnston with Nectar & Company shows us how to build a beehive birdcage planter. With these tips and instructions you’ll be one step closer to spring!
Beehive Birdcage Planter
-empty pots no larger than entrance of the birdcage
-Line bottom of the birdcage with moss to help soften the look
-Create varying heights using empty pots to elevate planted pots (use tall tropical’s like Bromeliads to direct the eye upward)
-Continue playing to fill in space of the birdcage
-Open door of the birdcage and extend foliage (make plants feel comfortable in new home)
-Last but not least, place ceramic birds inside to add whimsy
Plants that work well:
-Bromeliads, Maiden Hairs, Japanese birds nest *all can be purchased at your local nursery
-Patricia Ivy (Patricia Hedera Helix), sun or shade,
-Yellow Ripple Ivy (Hedera Helix) , sun or shade, Proven Winners
