  • How to plant hanging baskets

    When preparing the compost and liner, make sure you don't use soil that is too heavy, has poor drainage, and is not rich in nutrients – use new compost. As your hanging basket is a small area, you need the richest environment possible that will retain water. If you decide on purchasing an open wire basket, you'll need a liner such as moss or coconut fibre to prevent the soil from falling through.

    Fill your hanging planter a third full with compost and make several holes for the roots to pass through and lie on top of the compost and gently flatten them. Pack compost around the plants to remove air bubbles.

    You can even add climbing plants to grow up the chains for extra decoration. When you've made your arrangement, water your soil thoroughly – they might dry out faster than indoor plants to keep an eye on how quickly the soil dries up before you need to water it again. Rotate the basket often to let all sides get sunlight. Prune dead flowers regularly. Take a look at our secateurs. 

  • How many plants do you put in a hanging basket?

    Generally, you should use one plant per inch of soil. You can plant more if you have strong growing and resilient plants. If you notice they start to wither, you might have too many and might need to rethink your hanging planter.

  • What is a good flower for hanging baskets?

    You should incorporate a mixture of drooping, cascading flowers, flowers that attract specific wildlife, flat-leafed blooms, dainty round flowers, as well as clustered bright blooms. Consider plants like:

  • When should you put hanging baskets out?
