A hanging pot is a suspended container which is used for growing decorative plants. Usually, they are hung from buildings, where garden space is not available, and from the street for environmental enhancement. They also are suspended from free standing frames sometimes called hanging basket plants. One type of hanging basket is the inverted planter where plants are grown in an upside-down pot and they are watered from the top.
Hanging baskets are normally made from wire with a material usually plastic, lining to hold the contents. They are filled with peat-free compost usually with a water-retaining gel and controlled release fertiliser crystals. Typically they are planted with bedding plants.
