How to Plant a Hanging Basket - The Basics
Before you begin to plant a hanging basket you will need to choose the style of the basket you want to use first.This could be a choice from wire, wicker, round or cone square to name a few.Then your compost, a tub and basket has all the right ingredients or a general multi-purpose compost with water retaining gel and a pellet feed.Next is to decide on your plants, summer bedding has a variety of choice from up-rights to trailing, next it's time to choose your desired colours.
Wire baskets use moss, plastic, wool or moss substituting as liners, line the base of the basket with moss and place a circle of plastic on top, add some compost, water retaining gel and a bit more compost, damp down with water, this will activate the gel.
Place the required plants from inside out wrapped in a fine plastic through the gaps in the basket. Add a layer of moss all round the inside edge of the basket then add another alternate row of plants.
Add more compost and some food pellets mix in well with the compost. Put the last layer of moss around and fill with compost about 2 inches from the basket top. Place your centre piece in and arrange the rest of your plants all round. Bed in with more compost, water and then hang.
Put a layer of compost in the basket, add water retaining gel and top up half way with compost add the food pellet and the plants top up with compost water and hang basket. It is always best to let your hanging basket settle for a day before hanging. Sit the basket on top of an empty pot in a warm climate
