Basket Jacket was designed by Charlotte Canion. She is a recent retiree and a Texas Master Gardener. Being a Master Gardener, her garden has many hanging baskets. She wanted to cover up the plain and shabby looking planters so she made a cover for them. She also added a layer of insulation to help protect the plant and conserve water. The jacket has an elastic band on the top and bottom and slips over the plastic hanging baskets. It allows for excess water to drain out the bottom of the container.
The Basket Jacket can add a splash of color to a patio, yard or deck and slows the evaporation of moisture in the soil by providing a layer of insulation.
