Hanging flower filled with beautiful plants and flowers add a lot of beauty to our homes and lives. They add color whether indoors or out. It is always nice to bring nature into our lives and hanging flower are a great way to accomplish it. The need to be easy to maintain in order to make them enjoyable instead of a burden.
Plant choice is important in achieving a successful flowering basket. There are several varieties of plants that lend themselves well to the hanging basket. Flowering plants that make big full are those that will trail such as petunias, fuchsia, dianthus or impatiens. They can be mixed with green plants like ferns, succulents and ivy. They grow quickly filling and overflowing the basket. They will live all year if moved inside for the winter.
Choosing the right hanging basket is as important as choosing the right plant. Hanging lose moisture more quickly than other potted plants. They need a container that is good at retaining moisture. A basket made of natural fibers looks good and works well. The most popular are made of coconuts. These can be set down into a bucket of water and they will soak up the water and retain it for an extended time. They need to be re-soaked about once a week. In addition, the plants still need to be watered frequently. Plastic containers help prevent evaporation through the sides of the basket but are not as pretty as the natural fibers.
Use a strong support and attach it to a solid surface that can support the weight. Hanging basket are surprisingly heavy especially when they are watered. A nice simple black metal hanger tends to look good with almost any decor
