Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Hanging Baskets -

• Hang­ing bas­kets dry out faster than plants in the ground, par­tic­u­larly in windy weather, so use a pot­ting mix with wa­ter­stor­ing gran­ules.

• At­tach a hose wand to make wa­ter­ing eas­ier, and elim­i­nate the need to perch on a chair or lad­der.

• Make sure the hook you use can take the weight of the bas­ket – pot­ting mix is heav­ier when wet.

Hang your bas­kets for max­i­mum vis­ual im­pact – think a tree, a trel­lis or even the clothes­line!
