Hanging baskets add instant beauty and charm to a porch or landscape.  Summer is a great time to enjoy baskets!

Basket selection and proper care will give you long-lasting blooms.


Choose flowers that thrive in your sun/shade environment.

    • Not sure?  We’re happy to offer suggestions!

Rotate baskets weekly so that both sides see the sun.

Blooms galore where the baskets soaked up sun.

Scraggly foliage and no blooms…SHADY! I forgot to rotate my baskets!

Fertilize baskets weekly.

  • We recommend a fertilizer that mixes with water like Miracle Gro (not a sponsored post).

Water baskets DAILY.

  • Keeping up with watering is the number one way to keep baskets looking great (and alive!)
