The rustic artistry of wrought iron plant hangers is a great way to express your style and add that extra touch of class to your hanging foliage. Most wrought iron plant hangers have an artful arch which attaches to either a wall or to a post and is used to suspend hanging baskets or pots filled with lush leaves or heavy blooms. But some wrought iron plant hangers are simpler, designed with an understated iron clamp to display clay pots creatively indoors or outside on fences.

Spring is in the air and your green thumb is probably itching to be outside getting your backyard garden started for the year. But since we’re not quite to the out-like-a-lamb days of March and the lion’s breath is still adding a fearful nip to the air, you might want to think about bringing a touch of garden inside your house to help with the spring fever until that frosty lion’s been defrosted by those April showers that are right around the corner.
