Tomato and Upside down hanging baskets
Using a 12" wicker hanging basket half fill with a multi purpose compost and then place your plants out evenly . You can plant 3 - 4 in a basket this size. Back fill with compost then water well and leave the basket in a light shady place to settle. Feed once a week (you can use tomato feed). Water the soil frequently but don't spray water over the fruit.
Using a wire basket. Line a 14" basket and cut 4 slots evenly round the sides of the liner. Part fill with compost and water retaining gel, then gently feed the plants through the slots then cover with more compost and alternate 4 plants on the top of the basket and gently bed in.
Again water well and leave to settle. To keep birds off the plants make a cage from wire and netting.Strawberries can be planted with lettuce, broad beans, onions, and spinach and with the herb borage.
The best tomatoes to use in hanging baskets are 'Tumbling Tom Red', little gem, cherry tomatoes.Using a 12" wicker basket half fill with multi purpose compost and water retaining gel. Three tomatoes should be enough to go in one basket.
Place out evenly in the top of the basket and bed in with more compost. Water well and hang in a sheltered spot till settled and then hang out in a sunny position. Feed once a week with tomato feed.You can add parsley or basil as these are both good companion herbs for tomatoes, they can be placed on top in the middle.
This is easy enough. Take a wire hanging basket and a cocoa liner, cut a slit in the center of the liner and feed the plant through add some compost with mix of vermiculite, leaving part of the stem and last 2 leaves buried in the compost. Fill the rest of the basket with compost planting pea seeds in the top.
Peas are legumes and legumes have a way of
increasing the nitrogen content in the soil they grow in. Parsley and
basil are both good herbs to plant with tomatoes so either of these can
be planted on top. Tomatoes ripen best when they are lightly shaded
by their own leaves.
