Hanging Baskets for Beginners

Build a hanging basket with Laurelle

Hanging Baskets for Beginners

Let's build a hanging basket together. Start by assembling your ingredients. I filled my hanging basket with some Pro MixSoil or any good rich potting soil. You fill it right to the top because the soil tends to settle. The theme I'm going with are purples, greens and whites. To start with, I've got a beautiful Surprise Sparkle Blue Petunia, I love the speckled center. I like to plant my centers first. This lovely petunia is going to cascade out. I gently tease apart the roots. I'm settling my petunia in. I'm planting my hanging basket quite full.

Next I'm going to plant some of my trailers. This is a purple flowering bacopa. It says blue, but it's picking up purple quite nicely. I tuck it into the side. I'm going to alternate the bacopa with my variegated ground ivy which makes a great trailer. It'll probably even reach the ground. If you have a greenhouse and you can heat it, you can start earlier with smaller plants, but I don't have a greenhouse. I'm just going to start this on my deck.

I'm planting it heavy and I'm not evenly spacing. When I hang this, I have a front side and a back side. That's how I'm planting for me. If your hanging basket is hanging in the center of your patio, you're going to evenly space all your seedlings. So think about what side you're going to be looking at the most. I'm also probably over planting like I usually do!

Next I’ll plant the heliotrope. It has a beautiful fragrance to it. I always like plants that have some fragrance. I'm tucking these in and these are just going to cascade along the back. Just very
carefully digging it in. I’m to make a little bit of a mess, but that's okay!!

And finally, I'm sticking in my final little heliotrope at the back. This planter is going to be fragrant and it's going to be purples, greens and whites, soft and dark purples. If you need any more soil, you can just tuck the soil in but I think I've got lots in here. Give it a little jiggle.

Once you've watered you can fertilize with a liquid fertilizer. I like to use liquid fertilizer once a week or you can use a diluted version every second watering. There's also granular slow-release fertilizer if that's what you prefer and then hang it on your deck. Keep it covered. And a little bit sheltered until nighttime temperatures get to be above 10 degrees Celsius and then it's ready to go for sun.

There are lots of planters available from these cute little burlap and coconut fiber ones to the rod iron to the lighter plastic ones. If you don't have any spot to hang your hanging basket on, we have these Shepherds hooks, which are my favourite because I like to hang my hanging baskets quite low because I love of to look at what I have in the top of them. We also have brackets available and S hooks right over here. Brackets you can actually screw into the wall. If you have a hook that is quite high you can actually drop your hanging basket low with this so that you can enjoy it.

We've got lots of plants to choose from, our selection is always changing. We're getting deliveries every week. So come and take a look and find something that appeals to you.
