Peter’s vlog – hanging baskets

By 26th April 2017March 8th, 2020No Comments

In this April gardening vlog, our gardener Peter is joined by Kath, our volunteer, to show us how to get started with flower hanging baskets for the summer. Too busy to make one yourself? We have you covered! We will have some for sale from the Garden come June.

Here is the list of plants used in the video demonstration:
– Helichrysum silver
– Petunia sweet pink
– Dichondra silver falls
– Scaevola Topaz Pink
– Lobelia waterfall blue ice
– Petunia blue

And our summer baskets will contain the following:
– Petunia Trailing Easy Wave Mixed
– Geranium Trailing Blanche Roche White
– Bacopa Abunda Blue
– Helichrysum Gold
– Nepeta Trailing
– Giant Fuchsia Quasar
– Lobelia String of Pearls Mixed
– Argyranthemum Madeira Primrose

Many of these plants will provide a much needed feed for the pollinators alongside a lovely display of flowers.

For some more tips on pollinator-friendly flower baskets see Alys Fowler’s article.
