Plant Your Own Spring Meadow Moss Basket

Welcome spring!! 🌸🌷 We’re so glad you’re here! This moss lined rustic basket, bursting with spring bulbs, promises a beautiful season. Jason starts by unpacking the moss, which is sometimes squished in bags when you bring it home. Unfold each piece of moss, and put the green side against the wire mesh of the basket, so it can show off the colour. Don’t be afraid to use a thick layer of moss, as it helps keep the moisture inside!

After adding an all purpose potting mix, Jason pushes the soil right to the edge of the basket to help hold the moss in place and keep everything sturdy. Then he trims up the top edge and around the sides of the basket to show off the unique wire mesh design.

Three plants are better than one! Groupings of three create interest, colour and lush greenery in your basket. Tall daffodils in the back, big ranunculus blooms and various colours of pansies and violas.

Here are the ingredients we put in our design:

  • Moss
  • Narcissus
  • Ranunculus
  • Pansies
  • Violas
  • Selaginella

Pick out your favourite blooms for this spring celebration!
