What to do this month?
Everyone wants to have the best hanging basket.The secret is to remember that you only get out of it what you put in. Use a proper basket compost that has osmocote and is blended with loam to help retain the moisture. The middle of this month is ample time to put your baskets out. Indeed, a lot of people wait until the end of the month.
Use the correct plants for the aspect ( is it going in full sun or part shade - is it windy or protected). Let us know what your conditions are and we,ll recommend the right plants for that situation. We also have baskets already made up for the different conditions. If you have a special basket or planter already , we can do a refill service. There is now no reason why you can,t have the perfect baskets this year. read on ...>
