Hanging floral baskets at Five Mile Farm and Greenhouse

Editors' Picks

Usually hanging floral baskets seem rather innocuous, something you give to you mother for Mother's Day. But when that same term, "hanging floral basket," is applied to a half-domed piece of engineering cascading with plants and flowers weighing roughly the same as a Volkswagen Beetle, flowers don't seem so dainty. Come springtime, the greenhouses at Five Mile Farm are filled with orbiting baskets that distinctly resemble a very fragrant solar system made up of planets with some seriously mega mega flora.
