Hanging Baskets

Not everyone has a green thumb, but hanging planters don’t need a gardener to maintain them. Hanging plants are a great option for those who don’t have the time and patience for a fully-blooming garden. Easy to display around your home or office, hanging baskets don’t take up much space and make a wonderful gift for almost anyone. Many hanging basket flowers come filled with a variety of flowers and they are pre-fertilized, so all you need to do is choose one and hang it up.

Annuals are a popular choice for hanging plants. Popular annuals used in hanging baskets include:

  • Water hyssop
  • Silver bells
  • Impatiens
  • New Guinea impatiens
  • Lobelia
  • Sweet Alyssum
Hanging planters do require slightly more water due to their small size and because they don’t have the benefit of retaining water from the ground. The larger the pot you do get, the more soil you can fit in, and the more water it will retain.

Your hanging baskets should receive plant food every few weeks, which is essential to their growth and especially important during peak levels during growing seasons. Place plants in a location that ensures adequate sun exposure. Aside from regular watering and the occasional feeding of plant food, hanging plants are incredibly low maintenance and make a great addition to spots where you wouldn’t traditionally see flowers and plants.

When choosing a spot to hang your hanging baskets, consider the durability and quality of the hanger as the plant could fall once the weight of the soil and water is added. A high-quality basket and hanger are key to a successful hanging plant. Speak to the TERRA garden specialists about what type of hanger is right for your hanging flower baskets.
