Hi all. I just joined Smiling I am working on a design with containers along a looooong fence that I have in the garden. There is a cement path that runs along it so there isn't space to plant in the ground. RIght now I have containers along it with fence art but I want to redo it with containers/hanging baskets up and on the fence as well. I would really luv to see pics of what everyone is doing with containers and baskets along their fences or descriptions of what you've seen and really liked. Thanks all.

I believe that is exactly what they are meant to do.

Pamela Crawford Side Planting Containers are a very interesting option as well.

Oh I love those containers on tall poles along a walkway. I looked into those a few years ago but my pocketbook wasn't up for it....

I agree They cost a small fortune. I have a friend who snapped up a few from a local nursery that was going out of business, lucky girl.

A mojito's up! Charlie's Girl!

The gutter gardens are an interesting idea. The site has fun picures and ideas. I do wonder about watering issues though.
Pamela Crawford planters are beautiful and very pricey. Both to purchase and plant.
For a long fence line I would consider low maintence as far as plants and watering needs. How much sun/shade it gets. Maybe a combo of planters, reblooming climbers such as roses and clematis, perennials, and bulbs would work for you. How tall and what kind of fence might be a consideration too. Have fun with it!
