Hanging baskets are ideal for beautifying and bringing colour to any any garden space. Hanging baskets filled with flowers look great in your garden, patio, seating areas and balconies. They also work well to bring in beneficial insects to vegetable plots.
Constructed from strong and durable 10 mm wire with a decorative twist. The weatherproofed 3-point hanging chain and hoop allows quick and easy installation. The included coco lining contains compost and helps to regulate water retention. Spare coco liners are available to replace old, worn out liners.
The rough gauge for planting a hanging basket is to use one plant per inch of basket diameter. This means you could fit up to 12-plants per 30 cm (12") hanging basket and so on.
These hanging baskets take up to 15-litres of compost (size dependent).
Filling the included coco-lining with a readymade soil-perlite mix or mixing perlite with your preferred planting medium provides better water retention. Perlite is a porous, inert, volcanic rock that acts to hold water for the plant's to access, allowing longer periods between watering.
Hanging baskets are versatile. They're great for bringing a splash of colour with classic hanging basket plants like fuchsias and petunias. They can also extend your capacity for growing more of your own food.
As a gardener, it's likely that you already grow your own nutritious food that tastes much better than what you can buy in the supermarket. If you grow enough to freeze, you can be using your summer surplus all winter and in to the next spring.
Hanging Cherry Tomato varieties like 'Cherry Falls' or 'Tumbling Tom', the Blackberry 'Black Cascade' and hanging basket Strawberry varieties are all examples of food crops that you can grow in your hanging baskets.
Intermingling food crops with flowers that attract beneficial insects can help you pollinate and control pests that thrive on your vegetables and fruits. Plants like lobularia (sweet alyssum) have small white flowers to attract tiny, beneficial wasps that help control garden bugs and pests. Bidens and Diascias are great for attracting bees that will then find your fruits to pollinate.
