Flowering baskets

March 2, 2012 Filed under Soul food

I love my flowering, hanging baskets. I have them outside my house and they welcome me home with their bright cheeriness.

If you want to do the same, buy a 350mm wire basket, some best-quality potting mix, a bag of sphagnum moss and 24 seedlings in punnets (6 per punnet).

I do 3 rounds of 6 plants in the sides and 6 plants in the top.

I prefer to use one or two flower varieties so that the baskets look quite even when the plants grow.

Water them well, every other day.
