I have a quick and easy tutorial on freshening up those hanging baskets with new coco liners. And at the end of the post, I’m sharing just a few pictures from my mom’s celebration of life.
Hanging baskets overflowing with flowers are so beautiful but those liners can wear over time which can cause them to look pretty dingy. My iron basket from a few years back, was still in perfect condition so I decided to purchase new coconut liners and start fresh. I found mine on Amazon but I have seen them at Home Depot/Lowes as well. Our weather here in San Diego is pretty mild, so I decided to plant succulents so they can last all year.

Coco Plant Liner Sheets
Flowers, succulents, plants of your choice
Optional: Plastic Liner
Why Use Coco Liners? They make it easy to saturate the plants with water without waterlogging the roots.
Arrange Trailing Flowers
With a rectangular basket, I added trailing flowers on the corners of the basket. These plants will fill in blank spots quickly, giving you a full look with fewer plants.
Continue to add your plants until you are happy with the way it looks.
Water the newly planted basket until you see runoff. If you have only planted flowers and are in a dry climate, I would water daily, succulents I water about 1 time a week.
And here is what it looked like before replacing the liner and being extremely neglected over the past few months.
And just a few more baskets I replanted for the Summer, always so fun to bring color into the backyard!
This picture was taken right before everyone showed up for my mom’s celebration of life you can see the BBQ behind us where the hanging baskets are placed. And that BBQ will be getting a minor facelift soon. After we are done working on my mom’s house my focus will be outside since we spend so much time enjoying our beautiful weather and entertaining our loved ones.
So many friends and family came to celebrate our mom’s beautiful life! I honestly couldn’t feel more blessed to have the most incredible people that show up, support and love on a daily basis. It was nice to finally have closure, this year has honestly been one of the most difficult years of my entire life. I’m looking forward to turning my focus on my family and creating more beautiful memories before they are all out of the house.
Thank you, everyone, for stopping by and I am always here for anyone who is dealing with dementia, Parkinson’s’, Alzheimer’s. It’s one of the cruelest diseases and life can become pretty dark and lonely if you don’t have the support system around you. I’m happy people have found me through my blog and asked for advice and I’m happy I have had the same in return. The blogging community is truly wonderful! And just like Kawasaki disease, I’m here to help others going through the hardships of watching their loved ones suffer during these difficult times.
