    That came out just gorgeous, I like the natural elements, especially burlap, nice touch! Now I know what I can do with wicker baskets when I find them at the thrift stores. They always have so many of them. Thanks Laura and happy year! you guys.

    I would put a couple of pieces of slate underneath the basket to create air flow. In the covered area in the video, there isn’t much chance of rain/snow water getting into it, but in other places, water may get in there and then the bottom would sit in a damp spot. A couple pieces of slate underneath will help with that.

    Thanks for this laura! I always get inspired with your arrangements and this was one I really appreciated! I’ve wanted to plant in a wood planter for the 6 years I’ve been a gardener/grower, but since it breaks down so fast, it’s tough, with the crazy humid, rainy and hot weather we get here in Central Florida. I will be giving this techniqu a try! Thanks for sharing!

    You guys are an inspiration to all of us!!! I love watching your videos!! Here’s to a Happy and Healthy New Year for all 3 of you!!!

  5. Horticulture Geek on August 7, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Love the video. I tuck plants down in baskets and containers all the time. Especially while I am waiting on a spot or deciding on a spot to put it out in the garden long term. I figure you might as well enjoy it and see it in a pretty way while your waiting to enjoy it in the landscape. You always think of fun video topics, great inspiration for small beginner channels like mine. This is why you are my favorite YouTube channel! Happy New year to you and the family!

  6. Lisa Davis on August 7, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Love your content!! Can you incorporate this indoor plants as well?

  7. Sherry Hudson on August 7, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Laura, you see the French style of container planting in what looks like willow baskets. They are so gorgeous. What do u know about that?

  8. Cynthia Fisher on August 7, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    I wasn’t sure about the striped bow when you made the wreath, it looked too bright to me. But, wow, it looks tremendous hanging on the door! Well done! You’re an inspiration!

  9. Emerald sky on August 7, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Beautiful as usual!

  10. Jackie Horsley on August 7, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    thanks for that tip I well remember that

  11. Isela Campos on August 7, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you! HAPPY HOLIDAYS! ⛄️

  12. MsAponte69 on August 7, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    what about some hand rails?

  13. Mary Thomas on August 7, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    As a florist who loves incorporating plants whenever possible this was so helpful! I would flip the wreath on the door to where the exposed branch is toward bottom. Possibly replace bow. Love the window planters.

  14. Keelie Miller on August 7, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    I have some baskets I was wanting to use for Easter. This video came at the perfect time!

  15. Georgia Cinq-Mars on August 7, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    I am a native plant gardener.

    I am so happy to know that these PW inkberries are cultivated to be a replacement for Box! I want a low front hedge to give my yard some structure and I have been searching for a native I can prune like a Box!

    I have many inkberries on my property and you are right, none produce the berries.

    Thanks, as always, great video! I can’t wait to see how you use these inkberries in your garden! I think my garden center has some left over, on my way…byeee.

  16. Christine Pops on August 7, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Looks so fresh, clean, and DARLING!!! A great look for the New Year

  17. Wildlife gardener Tracey Pye on August 7, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    You’ve had snow! Looks pretty.

  18. Glenda Ruff on August 7, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Rains too much here. NC.

  19. Zona Lenhart on August 7, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    I saw somewhere where someone took a larger flat coordinating fabric door mat, placed it under the thicker jute door mat, giving the mat a larger presentation. If Laura could find a black and white striped fabric mat. Like she has time for that, but it would look cute with her wreath.

  20. mochitwa on August 7, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Did this "cheater" way in my house. Love the look of a plant in a basket

  21. Alison Lee on August 7, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Absolutely stunning Laura. Happy New Year to you & all your family ( Russell & No also !!)

  22. Jesse Nichols on August 7, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    Have you tried to grow carnivorous plants? They are easy to grow as long as you do research into them and know their requirements.

  23. maria perrotta on August 7, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Absolutely always a joy to watch your videos. Thank You!

  24. Laverne's Life Vlogs on August 7, 2021 at 9:39 pm

  25. mawpatti on August 7, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I saw SNOW….lol….Laura could you please do a video now that it is snowing at yall place? LOVE what you did with the basket …so cute!

  26. Kimberly Andrew on August 7, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Great tips. Thanks. I have an old aluminum tub that was given to me, and I can easily use this idea to brighten it up with a plant and tuck it on my porch. A trip to the nursery is in order.

  27. Tucker Lazzaratto on August 7, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Cute little entryway!❤️

  28. Sarah Marti on August 7, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Where did the three level shelf go that you had in the corner there? I5 had pretty copper trays in it.

  29. Rennells Suburban Homestead Prepping for Survival on August 7, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Are you going to put lights on it. I think that the fairy twinkle lights would be beautiful on it

  30. Brittany G on August 7, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    I’d love to know if you can grow boxwoods from cuttings. I have a few years until I can buy a house so I have time to have them grow in containers.

  31. Law Man on August 7, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Laura you are hardworking woman, and happy new year.

    How to plant tropical hibiscus cuttings

  33. Kelly Dodge on August 7, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    That basket is adorable. I favor square or rectangular vs round. Love it

  34. Martha Figueroa on August 7, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Looks nice

  35. Elaine Hazel on August 7, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Thanks Laura for this simple and beautiful way to plant in a basket. I’m taking down Christmas decorations and this has inspired me to do this on my front porch

  36. Courtney Kappel on August 7, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Great tip about using burlap to insulate the root ball. Thank you!

  37. Wandy Gonzalez on August 7, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Love the idea of leaving it in the pot. I have a nice basket also. Definitely will go buy something. Lol

  38. Mary Martin on August 7, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    I plant a lot of containers outside in my backyard. I know just the place to put a wicker planter like this & I will be using your "cheater" method. Perfect! Thanks!

  39. Landscape Matters on August 7, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Love those ink berries! Need to check them out more for sure. Oh and the “meh” wreath looks great!

  40. Saundra Moragne on August 7, 2021 at 10:02 pm
