What's in your hanging baskets?

I have followed on from last year with my fruit basket effect. This contains golden orange and deep crimson begonias, along with purple trailing petunias, golden violas and that lime green trailing thing that starts with lyth..

It was inspired by Montys Jewel garden and I love it. What are you planting?

    I’ve planted Clematis in my baskets this year, one each of Bijou and Filligree in each basket and in another basket I’m going to plant Thunbergia “Susie mix” I just wanted a complete change.

    I ran out of time and just bought a 6 pack mix for hanging baskets so waiting to see what it will look like! Homebase had colour coordinates packs to make it easier.
    I've got strawberries in a wicker one near the kitchen door.

  • No hanging baskets for me this year, planning on making a large kokedama with whatever spare plants I have left in the greenhouse.

    Cherry toms this year, and dwarf borage. Mixed begonias for colour in a dark spot.

    Small leaf ivy, white bacopa, sedums and spider plants.

    Let us know how your kokedama gets on, aurelie. :)

    I thought I would try something different this year.
    i wanted something that was not an annual but would be long lasting.
    i went for succulent delosperma Jewel of the desert in various colours

    I’m a traditionalist, I grow hundreds of seeds mostly the same every year and use them for baskets and tubs.  Every year I tell myself not to do it it again next year,  but I can’t resist😀

    Lovely. Lyn, what is the cloudy white flower on the far right of the 1st pic?

    They are beautiful Lyn. I only do four and that's enough watering for me.

    The watering is the longest job but I love it.
    the white flower is just Gypsophila.
