As a very unimaginative person, I always put in the same ingredients in my hanging baskets - lobelias, begonias, petunias.. and not even bidens.

Please help fill in the gaps ..

For a 12inc basket I put in 2trailing geraniums, one on both sides. trailing fucshia at the front. Fill in with Erigeron profusion, about 6 plants inbetween the geraniums and fucshia. I don't plant right at the back.

In Florida we always had hanging baskets with cherry and grape tomatoes. They required a lot of upkeep with fertilizer and watering but visitors loved them. They enjoyed it when they could pluck a tomato off and pop it in their mouth.

depends, on in the sun, not in the sun, how much you want to fuss with watering , or not to water much, or tend to pulling off spend flowers etc. or location, want a scent, not a scent. solid color, mixed, dangling some, contract. etc.

I tend to use lobelias, calibrachoa & fuchsias (which arrive a little later than the others & are not yet out in said picture). Also, are we talking full sun?

Amazing! What stunners! And I'm not overusing the word! Simple but effective!

Why thank you Alp for the kind sentiments as always, do you have any pictures of your hanging baskets? I'm sure you're being modest here! (y)

No. As a said, I am very unimaginative and I need help in this department, as well as in others. I really like that calibrachoa and will look for it when we go to Thurrock again.
