Succulent Hose Baskets

I weave 50 foot garden hose into plant containers. They work beautifully for succulents!

Shallow enough for lush arrangements, draining quickly while the soil stays put, the design creates ideal conditions for healthy plants that need to dry out between watering. People always do a double take when they first see the hose baskets, not quite realizing that they're looking at an intact hose with connectors on both ends! I fill them with varieties of Sedum, Echeveria, Graptoveria and Aeoniums that create interesting textures and contrast with the unexpected and colorful rubber hose.

Barbara, the colours and textures of this one are so beautiful. What a fascinating project this will be, especially finding the different hoses to make these out of. What an innovative way to display our favorite plants!
