The type of plant I am using are your general hanging basket flowers, Pansy,Million Bells,Petunia's,Begonia's. nothing flash

You would think the amount of water I have been using on the baskets the water would work it's way down to the windows / plants. But I have not seen anybody else mentioning the fact that it does not in any reiveiws

I will give them the plastic liner treatment next time but it does kind of make the purpose of these type of baskets redundant 

Oh just in case we were wondering I also use the water retention crystals but with little or no effect

Cheers

I have purchased several hanging baskets with little windows thru which one places the roots of the plants then secure them with grill. Trouble is the plants towards the bottom always look the worse for wear and often die off within weeks

I thought it was lack of water ( and it may be ) so I sprayed the bottom ones with a bottle but still not great results

Any ideas Please

Brugmania never flowered

Will take this on board and keep an eye on the Brug, I have been giving it feed whilst watering our tomato's. It now stands a couple of foot high and the single fork appears to the place to watch.

Thanx

Brugmania never flowered

I have had Brugmania before which never wintered that well due to lack of air flow around them . They rotted rather than the cold getting to them.

But this years catalogue brought plant seemed to grow well from the small thing that arrived thru the post back in May but has Failled to produce a single flower & I'm guessing mid to late August regardless of variety I might have been sent is to late in the season for it to start now ??

Any idea's what went wrong ???

Not considered that option which would be the easiest one perhaps. Will try the twating of the rings with an hammer next time it rains. That might help
