Spring / Summer Hanging Basket

Winter Hanging Basket

What you will need

  • A hanging basket
    • e.g. a wire frame, rattan or wicker material
    • 30, 35 or 40cm (12, 14 or 16")
  • Use a moss hanging basket liner to retain soil
    • For a 12" hanging basket choose a 12" basket liner
    • Push the liner into the basket & tidy up the edges

Choose your compost

  • A peat free compost is better for hanging baskets as it dries out less quickly

Preparing you basket

  • A good tip is to place your basket on a bucket to prevent it moving or falling over
  • Begin by adding some compost to your basket
  • Next add a water retaining mat to minimise the need for watering
  • Then add some more compost & start positioning your plants

Positioning the plants

  • Start with the largest plants
  • Place these in the centre or towards the back of the basket
  • Then choose the medium sized plants & position
  • Finally add the trailing plants & place these over the front & sides of the basket

Once planted

  • Add more compost & press plants in well
  • Add a slow-release fertiliser
  • Water basket & place in a greenhouse until plants are established

Where to position your basket

  • Pick a location that maximises the impact of the basket - but try to avoid a full sun or full shade locations
  • Make sure the wall bracket and bolts are strong enough to support the basket

Good plants for a summer basket

  • Geraniums, Petunias, Verbenas, Lobelias, Begonias & Fuchsias

Good plants for a spring basket

  • Pansies, Violas, Ivys, Arabis, Aubrietia, & Alyssum
