Hanging Mason Jar Impatiens

Hanging Mason Jar ImpatiensIn February I made some DIY hanging mason jar candles for the backyard of our house.  With daylight savings I knew we wouldn’t be putting them to good use over the summer so today I bought some impatiens at Lowes and set out to make some hanging plants for the backyard.

Off the bat I know that drainage will be an issue since I’m not drilling a hole in the jars, but the impatiens cost less than a bottle of Gatorade so it’s worth a try.  In an effort to prevent a soggy jar I broke up some old concrete that I had laying around and put about two inches of rock in the bottom of the jars.  On top of that I put planting soil in and created a space in the center for the impatiens to fit inside.  After placing the impatiens inside I filled any remaining spaces with potting soil.

With that I converted diy lanterns into diy hanging plants.
