Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets are a stunning way to display not just flowers but strawberries and herbs. They look fantastic when in full colour and give an uplift to your home exterior and walkways.

To have the best looking hanging baskets they need to be well maintained.  

After selecting the basket size and liner fill with a Hanging Basket Mix , or add Crystal Rain and Saturaid to ordinary potting mix.

If you are growing plants from the sides of baskets, cut slit in the liner.
Carefully position seedlings through the slits
Position the rest of your plants. Fill and firm potting mix around plants, level the mix to at least 1cm below the top rim of the basket.
Water basket thoroughly.
