What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't forget to leave them horizontal for 1-2 weeks before hanging.

Very eye catching. Great job and thought.

Totally lovely. After seeing your success, now I want to try this. Lasted all season? Amazing. What type of climate and season was it? Thank you for the tip about leaving them horizontal at first. I would not have thought to do that.

I'm in London, UK. Season was summer, I think they lasted something like May to October from memory. Our climate is pretty mixed with sun and rain, not too hot or too cold. The great thing about busy lizzies is that they will tolerate quite a bit of shade as well.
