• Pun­nets of an­nual seedlings • Co­conut fi­bre liner • Metal hang­ing bas­ket • Pot­ting mix STEP 1 Wa­ter the plants in the pun­net at least half an hour be­fore you start, to make them eas­ier to re­move. Add the liner to the bas­ket, then partly fill with pot­ting mix, us­ing a trowel. STEP 2 Re­move the plants and po­si­tion in the bas­ket to cre­ate a dense ef­fect. Scoop out mix from the bas­ket as re­quired, so the top soil level will sit at least 2cm be­low the lip of the bas­ket. STEP 3 Use a trowel to in­fill the gaps with more pot­ting mix, then wa­ter in well.
