Rigid Chain and Swivel Chain for
Hanging your hanging baskets never got easier – the new “easy hanger”
is a premium rigid chain that stays erect once attached to your hanging
basket(s) or hanging planter.
Loose chains make hanging your basket difficult even at times dangerous
– you have to grapple with holding BOTH the hook and the basket.
Cheap basket hangers are more like "wire coat hangers". They
are available cheaply, but they can look – “cheap” (What famous
actress said "No more wire hangers!"?)
The Easy Hanger
With the “Easy Hanger” rigid chain – you need only focus on holding
the basket. Here we see Peg attaching the Easy “Hanger”

Easy Hanger – Swivel - Rigid Chain
So popular is this easy hanger that it now also comes with a built in
swivel feature – see photo below.
The swivel chain is a new product and is great as it allows you to
easily move your baskets around so there's no "back" of the basket and
all the plants and flowers grow more evenly.
Ideally to get the best performance out of your hanging basket or
hanging planters you should rotate then by approx 180 degrees at least
twice a week.
The Easy Hang Swivel hanger makes this easy to do.
More Tips on Hanging Your Hanging Baskets
Here are a few more tips on hanging your hanging baskets:
Carefully Select your Site
Consider the plants your intend to plant and the site you intend to
hanging your hanging basket. If your site gets most shade – opt for
shade loving plants like impatiens – if your site get lots of sun opt
for sun loving plants like petunias or succulents.
Shade or Semi Shade as a rule of thumb means filtered and not direct
sunlight. Sun loving means more than 4-5 hours of direct sunlight.
* Consider Your Water Supply and Watering
It is much easy to water your baskets if they are close to a hose. If
you have to haul out the hose and then walk around the house to water
your baskets – the whole process can become a chore and your plants will
suffer as a result.
To make it easier on yourself make sure you don’t over fill your
baskets with soil – for more on this click here.
* Consider your time and daily routine(s)
Many hanging basket plants to look their best require lots and lots
of water – on a daily and sometime even twice daily basis. If you can
dedicate yourself to this routine you will be well rewarded – if not
then choose something that is drought tolerant – succulents for example.
Many succulents can easily be over-wintered for those in cooler
* Make sure your brackets are firmly attached
When a hanging basket or planter is watered it dramatically increases
in weight – this is especially the case if you are using Angel Moss –
which holds twenty times its own weight in water.
So ensure your brackets are firmly secured to the wall or structure
you intend to use to hold your hanging baskets.
