Multi Basking !!

Thought we would take our basket display to another level (3 actually)

I like this idea very much, but I found the weight of the lower ones (with water) pulled the first one to bits. So whats your secret?

Not sure it is! My husband connected the baskets with two 'S' shaped hooks and then tie wrapped them to secure (and to stop people pinching them :o/ ) I wonder if it is the type of basket used?? they are really quite strong. To water I used the basket watering wand on the top basket and let the water fall down slowly to the baskets underneath. Not sure if this helps??

Drc726. On of my neighbours came up with the following solution to that problem, and it it reduced wind rocking as well. Lets see if I can explain this properly.

First he mounted the basket bracket/s and then hanged the empty basket. Then he uses a window stay with a curled end or tail, hooks the tail over and around the basket rim and then marks off on the wall where the two
screw holes are for the window stay fixing.

So you have a basket bracket and underneath that window stay at basket rim level.

Makes his baskets hangs it hooks over the window stay. He even uses pliers to tighten tail over the basket rim so it is harder to steal...Hope that makes sense

Great. That sounds just perfect. Will let my OH read this and then we can secure them properly. Thank you :o))))

Thanks Sheilar. It started when we were just hanging a couple to fill them and I thought they looked so unusual suggested we give 3 a go. Had lots of lovely comments from neighbours :o)
