Hanging Basket Installation


Date: June 10th, 2016

Hanging baskets can be beautiful focal points that take up only a limited amount of space. Many different flower combinations can be utilized; especially annuals that have bright blossoming periods that flow over the edges of a container. Petunias and begonias also make a perfect flower for any hanging basket.

The first step in hanging a flower basket is choosing the location. Take time and evaluate a location before you decide to hang your basket. Most importantly, evaluate whether the supporting structure is able to hold the weight of the basket. When watered, a large hanging basket can become very heavy.

Also, assess the site based on the plants you are going to place within it. Begonias require full sun to have a continuous bloom while other plants such as the million bells require shade to promote heavy blooming periods.

Remember, these baskets are usually the main centerpiece of a garden or segment of a home. Because of this, a well placed basket can truly be a wonderful spectacle.

Hanging a basket is an extremely simple procedure that can add flair to any area of your property. Follow these instructions if you want to hang a basket to a wall or surface.

You are now finished - it's that simple!
