in : Pots & containers: Hanging baskets
This fiery hanging basket display combines trailing begonia with verbena and calibrachoa plants. Perfect for a sunny spot, it provides a long season of colour throughout summer.
Place the basket in an empty flower pot to make planting easier.
Add the coir liner and fill two-thirds with compost.
Position the plants in the basket, ensuring the begonia is well placed to grow over the sides. Add more compost and firm plants in well.
Add slow-release fertiliser pellets to boost the floweing potential of the plants.
Water the basket thoroughly and allow to drain before hanging it in its final position.
