This iron hanging bracket will stay and I plan to get others as well. It is currently supporting a bird feeder but this side of the garden gets the most sun so this is where the hanging baskets will eventually be placed.
The bird feeder, which will also stay, was a Christmas gift. According to the instructions (which I actually read!!), between January and April it is to be filled with the provided sheep wool which the birds will take for nesting material and then after April the container can be filled with wild bird seed and used as a feeder.
