Our Summer hanging baskets
are planted in carefully picked colour schemes to view the full range watch our video
. They are
available from mid-April and we have our largest range of Summer hanging baskets during the month of May - popular colour schemes do tend to sell out quickly.
hanging baskets are available from early September to early November. They contain a beautiful selection of frost resistant plants and are underplanted with Spring bulbs to ensure long
lasting colour until you are ready for your Summer basket, however don't leave it too late as our Summer baskets are extremely popular and often sell out
How to care for your hanging basket
Here are some handy tips and demonstration videos to improve your summer hanging basket displays:
Our Summer hanging baskets do require protection from the frost therefore we always recommend keeping an eye on the night time temperatures. If the temperature drops below four degrees your
baskets must be covered with fleece or brought inside for the night. It is equally important to bring the baskets back outside or uncover them during the day as they require plenty of light and fresh
air. Our Winter hanging baskets are fully frost resistant.
We recommend feeding your baskets with soluble fertiliser every two to three days. This leads to continued blooming without the need for dead heading. To maximise your hanging baskets you can feed
them with a high potash fertiliser, up to three times a week during peak season (July and August). Do not feed your baskets with un-coated fertilisers such as Growmore, as this will be burn
Don’t let them dry out! Water your hanging baskets regularly. If you don’t have time it might be worth considering installing an automatic drip irrigation system which is inexpensive
and saves lots of time…they can also be used in a hosepipe ban because they reduce water wastage.
We are able to re-use our plastic 14" self-watering baskets and the smaller plastic hanging pots. We offer a £1.00 discount when you return an empty plastic self-watering 14" basket
complete with mat and disc. Baskets must have been purchased from us and be in good condition! Please note that the chains from your old basket will be transferred to your new basket.
Unfortunately we are unable to re-use wicker baskets.
We do not provide a basket replanting service however should you wish to plant up last season's basket we sell DIY tub and basket kits during the Spring and Autumn season.
