Using baskets as planters make for a stunning decorative feature to house a gorgeous tree. Baskets are lighter than typical planters, making it easy to move from room to room. Consider using larger baskets for floor plants and smaller ones for tabletop arrangements. Place the pot directly inside or replant the contents using a liner to protect your basket. You might also want to be sure you remove the plant and clean the stand with a dry cloth occasionally. Woven baskets complement the natural elements of plants, creating a harmonious and organic look.
