Instead of putting rocks in the bottom of big porch planters, she fills the bottom with sealed empty plastic 20 ounce bottles! They give the pot the drainage it needs, without adding all that extra weight! So smart!! Love this idea!

Five Great Ferns to Hang Up

Five Great Ferns to Hang Up * Best for Hanging Around Boston fern * Keeper of the Door ‘Kimberley Queen’ fern * Tops for Tables ‘Dallas’ fern * Most Intriguing Accent ‘Tiger’ fern * When Bigger Is Better ‘Macho’ fern http://www.southernliving.com/home-garden/gardens/five-great-ferns-hang-up-00400000006332/

Keep the fern in the same pots they come in, every other day submerge them in a 5 gallon bucket filled with 1/2 cup of epson salts & 3 gallons of regular water until the soil stops bubbling, then hang up to drip dry... ferns will be dark green, glossy, and 3x3 by September from ferns that start out with 7 fronds in May. - MyHomeLookBook
