Missing the colour and vividness of your garden in summer? Dreading the coming lack of winter growth?
Well now is the time to guarantee colour around your home, in the autumn and winter months, by planting hanging baskets.
There are thousands of keen gardeners out there who don’t have access to a garden. There are also many frustrated gardeners for whom the ongoing battle with their insubordinate wildernesses or infertile soil is just too much. Then there are those whose gardens consist simply of small balconies, pavers and courtyards.
With the cooler weather approaching you don’t have to resign yourself to a drab, dull garden.
“Hanging baskets planted with winter flowers will brighten up your garden in the colder months,” says Awapuni gardening guru, Tod Palenski. “You could even get the kids involved for a fun Easter or wet weekend project.”
