Considering the range of weather we have experienced in the UK over the summer months, plants in pots and baskets are flourishing. Ken Crowther has returned to the Cambridgeshire garden of Baby Bio’s Anita Dent to how everything is blooming.
As Ambassador for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, Ken Crowther is encouraging people to open their garden and raise much needed funds for the charity. As part of the summer of open garden, Baby Bio are running the Big Boost Challenge as Anita Dent explained.
Hopefully now the chance of frost has gone it is time to turn your attention to hanging baskets. These days’ baskets come in a variety of different sizes and materials from wicker and plastic to wire one you fill with moss. Keeping them looking at their best is all down to how much time and effort you put in as Anita Dent from Bayer told Ken Crowther.
Nothing tastes better than strawberries grown in your own garden. They are one of the first food plants you will see in the garden centre. They are easy to grow, and having a small garden or even no garden need not be barrier as strawberries can be grown in containers and hanging baskets. Anita Dent from Bayer Garden is a huge fan of the home grown variety.
As spring approaches there is a season of hard work ahead. Bayer Garden’s Anita Dent and Ken Crowther caught up in the strawberry patch. This quintessential summer fruit is easy to grow in beds, however if you don’t have space you can take advantage of hanging baskets, containers and even drain pipes.
