Attaching potted plants to fence?

Irma_StPete(z9 FL)February 22, 2011

I want to attach potted plants to my chain link fence, preferably at no cost - using recycled materials - for instance. I could bend wire coat hangers around pots, or clip plastic bag of dirt to the fence... but do you know of other ways? Pictures or website links would be great. Thanks.

This is not exactly what you asked for but they actually make a little thingy that does attach pots to things. I got a couple a while back from Park Seed free with my order but I have not used them yet.

Today I made a planter from a quart milk jug - the handle will easily tie to the chain link fence. (Started hole for cutting out side w/candle flame, same for drainage.) Going to beg more from neighbors. Added cascading nasturtiums. With enough mounted in one place, it might look "not like milk jugs". Could spray paint them.
Welcome more ideas!

Hang a purse on the fence and put the pot inside.

I use orchid hangers (with 4 or 6 inch pots)but you could make your own from wire. Mine hold tillandsia and smaller bromeliads since my fence is in shade.

Believe it or not, I use plastic coffee cans, cut the top ring off but leave a 2" wedge (sort of like a tag).

What I end up with is a pot with a "point" that I simply staple to the fence!

I grow most of my herbs and some flowers, strawberries, and other shallow root plants. Works wonders, costs nothing...I'll post pics.

My clients are amazed at how well it works. I use the BIG 1/2" staples and put 2 or 3 in. If it feels loose at any point, I add a staple.

I suppose you could make a hole and hang it on a hook or nail as well, but the staples keep it flat and solid.

Make any sense?
