Birdhouse and Pole with vertical broms !!!!! Thankyou dear friend

Birdhouse and Pole with vertical broms !!!!! Thankyou dear friend

A good GS friend gave this birdhouse to me as a gift so I thought I would add broms up the pole.I am hoping they fill out beautifully and hopefully some little finches might take up residence.

Lillian,This is just a wonderful idea and the birdhouse is beautiful.I hate to sound so dumb but I'm not familiar with Broms can you you tell me about them? Can we grow them in the southern USA?

Thanks Michelle  it come up pretty good, Clare I had been thinking of it for awhile the garden was bare of color so I wanted to do something to enhance the birdhouse and this done the trick.If they don't do well there I will come up with something else or wait for spring color.

What a clever idea to staple the shade cloth to the pole so you could put soil in for the broms! The best part is that the shade cloth is hidden and it just looks like the broms are growing on the pole.

Thanks Barbara and Clare I had some broms last year that I tried without the soil they done ok. But I decided to put these in soil just to give them a good start and some anchoring. I got some good quality shadecloth really thick and doubled it up I stapled it to the pole the bought the bottom half up to make little pockets to hold soil and stapled it in place . Then just filled the pockets up and added the broms  to hide the shadecloth. I am hoping that some little birds find  themselves a home soon in this beautiful birdhouse!!!!!

Oh, this is beautiful & the broms fit in very nice!  Very creative!

Gorgeous! The broms don't need soil? How did you plant them going up the pole? This looks so nice. Hopefully, some little birdies will move in soon.
