Hanging Baskets - Brick Wall


I wish to hang baskets from a brick wall. The baskets will be filled with plants and some dirt/soil.

What is the best method to hang the baskets from the wall?

Would you recommend using Nails (like Masonry Nails of some kind)?

Would recommend drilling into the Brick or into the Mortar?

Thanks !

Going to be hard to do without drilling the mortar/brick. Tapcon screws will certainly work as will many other concrete anchors. If you want it to be removable (as in not permanent) use a tapcon or plastic anchor/screw rather than a hammer set nail type. I would not try to put tapcons into the brick itself as the treads can strip out the brick or crack it. Better to go into the mortar. If using the the plastic anchors with screws, drilling into the brick is fine.
