Summer Hanging Baskets
With the risk of frosts now behind us, now is the perfect time to add colourful hanging baskets to your garden. Whether you’re a mixed hue fan or a colour theme lover, we have the plants, baskets and expert advice to create stunning hanging baskets.

Hanging Baskets

There are three methods to achieve the look. These are based on how much you’d like to do yourself and how much time until you need the display (there is nothing worse than having a special event and your hanging baskets still have a couple of weeks until they are looking their best!!) So which will you be? A, B or C?

A. Plant Your Own
This is very much DIY and is really unique to you. We have a huge choice to help – so this method is fun and the results can be incredible. We have an amazing collection of bush and trailing plants to create your very own hanging baskets. Our hanging basket plants are grown on a specialist nursery in the Malvern Hills, that we have been growing with for over 20 years. Grown in 9cm ‘deep root’ pots we are able to achieve plants in flower at a great price – £2.99 each pick & mix and any 5 for £12. Favourites include Trailing Petunia, Catmint, Trailing Fuchsias, Million Bells, Ivy Leaf Geraniums and many more.
