Surprising summer trend #1 - hanging plant holders

A staple of the seventies, hanging plant holders are one of those trends that we never thought we'd see again... but they're back in fashion and looking better than ever this summer.

Ask any child of the seventies and they'll remember the hanging plant holder - think knotted macramé, wooden beads, spider plants and ferns - with happy memories of school crafting sessions spent knotting away with a ball of jute and a handful of beads. And while these macramé holders (from £47 each) from Graham and Green sum up the seventies look perfectly, our 2015 round-up also offers a more modern twist on the retro trend.
