Country Weave Hanging Basket
How to fill your hanging basket:
- Pierce the plastic liner, to ensure drainage, in five or six places, spread out but near the base
- Fill with compost
- Plant up to the top of the basket, ideally using trailing plants around the edge of the basket and upright plants in the centre.
- To look after your basket, feed, water and deadhead regularly, which means removing any dead flowers heads to ensure your plants keep on flowering.
For summer baskets you can add in water retentive gel into the compost to help with conserving water as the gel releases water when the plants need it and slow release fertiliser in the soil as that releases feed throughout the flowering period keeping your plants healthier and happier for longer.
