Hanging baskets come in many shapes and sizes. I like using the wire baskets with coconut fiber lining. They make beautiful baskets and plants seem to really thrive in these.
I start by lining the basket with the coconut fiber liner. I then place a plastic pan in the bottom to hold water and soil.
Fill the basket with potting mix about 3/4 way to the top of the liner, and it is ready for plants.
Place the top of the new plants root soil even with the soil in your basket, being careful not to get them too deep.
After you have put all the plants in, water the new transplanted plants thoroughly. This will give them a good start for their new home.
I like to use all different shapes and sizes for flower containers.
I used Gryphon Begonias and Lasting Love Caladiums for the larger pots. These two plants love the shade so they will have a permanent shady spot for the summer.
The larger pots are usually stationary throughout the summer while the smaller containers can be moved depending on their need for sun or shade.
In the smaller containers and baskets, I planted inpatients, marigolds, and pentas. They tolerate the heat of the summer and soon will be lush and full with a constant bloom of beautiful bright flowers.
