Easy plant hanging basket


Easy plant hanging basket

I cant say Ive ever had that much success with hanging baskets. After seeing Willinillis magnificent ones from last year, thought I would give them a try. Im really quite pleased with the results so far. This was planted up in Feb this year, and has nearly covered the basket already.

If you get some of those easy baskets Ba, you wont have to try harder - They do all the work for you! Easy to keep watered too.

I do have 'easy' baskets Poppy from Malvern last year...I've made a real effort this year...if they work I'll put a pic on and gloat. I've decided the trick is to put far more plants in than you think would be good for it:-)

Lovely colours PL. Those violas are so sweet. Very attractive in a basket as you get to see them close up:)))

I look forward to seeing those pictures BA. Im sure theyll be wonderful. Thanks Maggie, they are right outside my kitchen door so I see them all the time.

I really love violas and they are such good value - they just give and give. I think they look at their best like this - not mixed in with other plants. I've never done a basket of them alone, but I often have pots of them. Lovely!
