'In the pink' plant display

Mark Raynershows you how to build this space-saving hanging plant display – perfect for injecting a splash of colour on a cool winter’s day.

You will need: Three terracotta pots, three pot hangers, three pink cyclamens, an offcut of landscaping timber or treated plywood, paintbrush, Resene Quick Dry, Resene Terracotta Sealer, Resene Testpots of Resene Cabaret, Resene Deep Blush, Resene Geronimo and Resene Illusion, screwdriver with drill bits, or power drill, exterior screws to attach timber or plywood to fence, good quality potting mix. .

Here's another idea: Create a trio of funky gold metallic pots by using a basecoat of Resene Porsche, followed by two coats of Resene Bullion, and paint the wood with Resene All Black. For an extra shiny look, finish off the pots with two coats of Resene Concrete Clear.
