Regular readers may recall that last spring I learned how to make baskets.
I’ve continued experimenting with willow baskets, and began using upcycled jewellery to hang these baskets, and looking for pretty ways to plant them that are not too heavy.
I’ve propagated spider plants and I’m growing them hydroponically – that’s with water instead of soil. I’m using water gel beads, also known as crystal soil or Orbeez. I hydrated the beads using water with some organic seaweed liquid fertiliser, which should nourish the plants as they grow. I think they’re prettier than soil…
It’s fun to make things!
This is a really simple basket, based on the traditional corn dolly. It has a groovy spiral pattern, which naturally twists and tapers.
I’m rather happy with this little indoor planter, and it’s on sale at my etsy shop.
