easy to grow seeds for hanging baskets

england, United Kingdom Gb

hi i have a heated propagater but only have a cold window sill to grow on untill it is time to plant outside i have 5 hanging baskets and would like to try and to fill them up with my own grown plants thanks



There are a variety of plants that it is easy to grow for your hanging baskets:
Trailing lobelia
Busy Lizzie
Callibrachoa (Mini Petunias)
Black Eyed Susan (Thunbergia)
Trailing Campanula

The list is endless, personally I would not start in a heated propagator as you are likely to end up with lanky top growth. If you have a bedroom windowsill or the like to start them on then just put them in a poly bag until the seeds have germinated then remove from bag, keep moist but not overly wet, and, obviously don't let them get too cold!
