Description

What is the Gardman Classic Hanging Basket?

Hanging Baskets are ideal for beautifying any garden space. Outdoor hanging baskets bring colour to any space. The right mix of flowers can work to be visually attractive as well as bringing in beneficial insects to your garden or vegetable plots.


The classic hanging basket is constructed of heavy-duty, black coated wire and is available in 3-sizes. It comes complete with a 3-point galvanised chain and hoop attachment for quick and easy installation to a hanging basket bracket. A coco liner is included to hold your compost and help preserve water and control drainage. Spare coco liners are available to replace old, worn out liners.


What Size Hanging Basket Do I Need?

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. There are exceptions, where you can go a little further, but they only apply to exceptionally strong-growing plants, like Fuchsias and Geraniums.


Garden tip:


  • More plants per basket means more watering. Larger numbers of plants will deplete water reserves faster.

How Do I Plant Hanging Baskets?

Using readymade soil-perlite mixes or adding perlite to your preferred planting medium provides better water retention. The porous, inert volcanic rock acts to hold water for your plant's roots to access, allowing longer periods between watering.


Garden tip:

  • Add perlite so it makes up around 10-50% of the total volume of potting mix. Add 10-20% perlite if you want better water retention and don't plan on using a lot of extra nutrients.

Can I Grow Food Crops in Hanging Baskets?

Hanging baskets are versatile. They're great for bringing a splash of colour, they can also extend your growing space for more of your own food.


As a gardener, it's likely that you already grow your own nutritious food that tastes much better than other mass-grown, imported foods. If you grow enough produce 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 Strawberries are all examples of alternatives that you can grow in your hanging baskets.


How do I Attract Beneficial Garden Insects

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.
