Hanging Basket Care

August 11, 2021


Special Care

Special care has been taken to provide you with healthy, vigorous plants that will give you months of gardening pleasure when given the proper care. The following suggestions are offered to ensure your success.

May 15th

Before May 15, keep your basket above 45 degrees. After that, normal outdoor temperatures are ideal.

Keep your basket in the correct light exposure (sun or shade as indicated on the tag.) and water when needed.

1. Water for a purpose, allowing plants to “dry down” moderately between watering.

2. Use the “knuckle test” to check the moisture level in your soil. Insert the index finger up to your first knuckle. If the soil feels dry, it is time to water thoroughly, allowing excess moisture to drain from the bottom of the pot.

Help Us Grow

Fertilization – We recommend the use of a slow-release fertilizer such as Osmocote 18-6-12 that lasts for the entire growing season. Use of these types of fertilizers usually eliminates the need for liquid types such as Miracle Grow, although supplemental use of these fertilizers does not hurt the plants if you feel your plants need an extra boost.
