At Manor Gardens Nursery, we know what it takes to create the perfect hanging basket. All year round a garden can be significantly enhanced by a selection of beautiful hanging baskets, providing colour and foliage at a range of different heights. The fact is that hanging baskets in Rotherham can add a whole new dimension to your garden, enhancing the space and increasing the curb appeal of your home.
Hanging baskets allow you to brighten up various areas of your garden with foliage that breathes new life into the space. Whether there is a shady area that you find it difficult to add the sense of life to or a garden wall that is somewhat of an eyesore, a hanging basket could be the ideal way to fix it.
We know that when it comes to hanging baskets in Rotherham, size is everything. The bigger the basket, the more colour it will add to the space, it is as simple as that. We also know that creating beautiful hanging baskets isn’t always an easy task, which is why we wanted to share some of our favourite ideas for creating beautiful baskets to hang around your garden.
Choose your basket size well. When it comes to creating beautiful hanging baskets, we are able to offer a range of different basket sizes (and shapes) to choose from. Don’t pick out any old basket, think carefully about the impact that you want it to have. For a bigger impact, a larger basket would need to be used, while a smaller basket can look great for making a smaller impact.
When it comes to creating a hanging basket that will stand the test of time, we cannot stress enough the importance of choosing the right compost. This is because plants growing in a small area need the best possible start to life, and a compost with all of the right nutrients will give them this. At Manor Gardens Nursery we are able to offer a wide range of composts types, and our team are always happy to help when it comes to choosing which one is best for your project, so don’t be afraid to ask.
Not all plants do well in hanging baskets, which is why we always advise that our customers choose plants for hanging baskets carefully. Most plants will have a label saying what they are suitable for, but if they don’t, one of our team members will be able to help advise you. Some of the best plants for hanging baskets include trailing fuchsias, begonias, and geraniums, bidens, petunias, and surfinias also do well in hanging baskets.
The most beautiful hanging baskets always have an avalanche of colour, cascading down below them. To achieve this effect, side planting is vital, as well as planting a selection of plants in the centre of the basket.
The one mistake that is most commonly made with hanging baskets is failing to water them enough during the summer weather. Make sure that your baskets get a good water every couple of days in warm weather, to prevent them from drying out.
