HAPPY & HEALTHY
Bigger baskets are best as they hold more soil and moisture.
Select plants that tolerate dryness – petunias, calibrachoa, gazania, osteospermum, alyssum, portulaca and ivy geranium are all great. To reduce weight use a mix of 60% potting mix and 40% coconut fibre or vermiculite. Blend in some water storage granules.
To apply water, use a water wand attached to the end of the hose.
Feed your plants with easy-to-apply controlled-release fertiliser.
On hot days, bring baskets down, water well and replace when cooler.
