Planting with hanging baskets and planters
Hanging baskets can help brighten up dark corners of your garden and add a splash of colour to your wooden fencing or exterior walls. The baskets are not heavy and can easily be supported by wooden or concrete fence posts. Once we have installed your hanging baskets, we line them with sheeting to prevent any compost falling out. It’s totally up to you what you would like to grow.
Maintenance of hanging baskets could not be easier. Once we have filled them with compost and completed the planting stages, you need to water them on a daily basis water through the summer months and watch them bloom. The ideal time to begin planting is the beginning of summer around April, as long as there is no frost around.
Many people are now using hanging baskets as mini herb gardens. They can be positioned close to your kitchen door, for easy access to herbs throughout the growing season. Some herbs have decorative and coloured leaves, making them not only edible but also an attractive feature on your wall. Planters may also be used as herb gardens too, giving the added advantage of being able to be moved around. Mini planters can be moved indoors next to a sunny window during the winter months.
