Hanging flower baskets can be hung in various locations around your home such as a patio, conservatory, indoor or outdoor porch or hallway. You can create a beautiful hanging flower arrangement quite easily and it won’t cost you too much money. All you need it a bit of imagination and you will soon have an eye catching flower arrangement.

Choosing a Hanging Flower Basket

It is important to take some time to choose a basket that can hold your selection of flowers properly. There are a broad range of baskets available in a range of materials including wire mesh, plastic and wood. Make sure that your basket is the right size for the area where it will be hanging; too big will make the space look cluttered, too small will look understated. Solid baskets make of pottery or plastic do retain water better and come in many different colors and designs.

Choosing Flowering Plants for your Basket

You can choose from a wide variety of flowers and plant for your hanging basket. Some plants are more suited than others; these include lobelia, ivy, lantana, fuchsia, verbena, petunia, moss rose, nasturtium, begonia and browallia. The basket should be brimming with colorful plants. The plants should not only cover the surface of the basket but should also poke through and gaps in the basket (if is made of wire mesh), and trail over the sides of the basket. Pick a color scheme that will brighten your location and use colors that compliment each other such as pinks and white, reds and purples.

Caring for your Hanging Flower Basket

Because hanging flower baskets tend to get a lot of exposure to the sun and wind they do need regular upkeep. Remove dead flower heads as they appear, this will encourage new flowers and extend the flowering period. Water daily and fertilize at least once each week. Do remember that your hanging basket is full of damp soil and will be quite heavy. Make sure that you have a sturdy support bracket for it to hang from in order to avoid it falling.
