It is important to remember that hanging plants will be heavier after
they are watered so it is essential that you select a well-made hanging basket. If the hanging basket is subject to the wind the quality of the basket is
even more important. The hanging
baskets at Hooks and Lattice are extremely sturdy and have been protected with
either a vinyl coating or an actual powder coat finish. These protective coatings will help to ensure that you have a good
looking and strong hanging basket for seasons to come.
After selecting your preferred style of hanging basket or wall basket the next
step will be to choose your plants. Certain
plants will require only top planting to provide that long trailing look while
other plants will look best when they are planted in the sides of the basket as
well as the top. Consult your local
nursery for specific information regarding your preferred plants. If you wish to include a variety of plant shapes in your hanging basket
then the trailing plants should be planted at the edges and the sides while the
upright plants should be placed in the center. Keep in mind that small, young, healthy plants will adapt to their new
environment more quickly than older plants.
For the best looking and happiest plants you should keep in mind two important
words, water and fertilizer. Both
are important to the vitality of your plants. Plants in hanging baskets require more frequent watering than plants in
your garden. This is primarily due
to water evaporating from the sides and the bottom of the basket in addition to
just the top of the soil. If the
potting mix feels dry 1ï¿1/2 below the surface of the soil it is time to water. Fertilizer is an important component to beautiful
plants. Frequent watering flushes nutrients from the soil and thus
fertilizing is also required. However,
time-release fertilizers simplify this process and should be re-applied
tablets disintegrate. Your local
nursery can provide valuable information when you purchase the plants
intend to use.
