An easy way to create instant summer colour is by using hanging baskets and troughs. Garden centres and nurseries have plenty on display but it’s easy to create your own. Phostrogen Slow Release Plant Food and Moisture Control is an ideal solution for busy gardeners as Tom Cole, Senior Horticultural Lecturer at Writtle University College told Ken Crowther.




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.
