I really want to add some more plants and greenery to our patio and outdoor area to bring it to life.
When we added a new addition our rescue dog Lexi to our home just over a year ago, Lexi decided that every plastic pot under the patio was her chew toy and day after day another plant and pot was chewed and played with until there were none left. Even the few ceramic pots and plants I had weren't safe .... this large ceramic pot with succulents and pebbles was my favourite and the first plants I potted up when we moved into the house 4 years ago.
But just look at what these two got up to when we were dog sitting Lexi's big sister ....

Yes that's Lexi looking extremely guilty at the back there!
So what pots are safe in the Jarrah Jungle patio area?
Well, these hanging pots and plants I picked up just before Christmas when doing some patio pimping have lasted well over the hot summer months and best of all Lexi can't reach them to destroy them!
I think succulents in hanging pots are my best bet if I want some greenery around. The thing I love about succulents is they don't need a lot of water and are pretty tough and hardy so survive well in small pots.

I have seen a lot of different styles of hanging pots lately, especially the fabric pot holders which are a bit of a flashback from the 70s but with their bright colours are now on trend.
Here are some really great hanging planters I have pinned lately ....
