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.
The Big Boost Challenge was about planting identical containers and baskets and feeding one every two weeks with just water the other was using a little Baby Bio outdoors in the watering can. Anita Dent who took part in the challenge showed Ken Crowther the noticeable difference in her two baskets.
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.
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.
Local residents in the Essex town of Stanford-le-Hope are responsible for brighten the place up thanks to the addition of 28 hanging baskets which have been dotted about. James Bayford told Owen Ward how the scheme got off the ground.
