Moss Lettuce Basket

Grow a beautiful foliage basket you can nibble from!
If you grow lettuce, you probably know that slugs can ruin your whole plantation. To help you solve this problem, we found this smart and attractive way of growing it in hanging baskets on Rainy Side Gardeners website.

It’s a great solution as slugs can’t get to them, and you can keep the lettuce at hand if you hang it on your entryway. Moss will help to keep your hanging plantation moist throughout the day and create a natural-looking basket. If you need more helpful information on organic farming, be sure to visit their website, especially if you live in maritime climate.
