Be anything but “Municipal”

Uh oh… hold your trowels. The Brits have declared the hanging basket out of style, condemning them as the "white stilettos of the gardening world", "a bit naff", and (most damning of all) "municipal".

"…tastes have become more sophisticated with a move from head-level
baskets to troughs and Italian-style pots at ground level – a trend
triggered by baskets’ tendency to deteriorate fast if neglected."

Who can keep up?
