Good product - sturdy and attractive. BUT half way through the summer water stopped moving from reservoir because fibrous roots had blocked the wick. Plants would die unless watered conventionally from above.

I don't recommend this product

I use these for trailing pelargoniums at the front of the house.They replaced 2 baskets which were quite old.I didn't find these as good at self-watering as the old baskets which meant I had to water them more.Otherwise they were OK.

Do you or can you add compost to this along with the moss? So maybe some compost in the middle with the moss lining the outer side like in the photo? I'm new to gardening so any advice would be much appreciated! =)

Hello, Yes you can line the outer edges with moss, and then fill the cavity in the middle with compost, before planting up the top.

How long do the self watering hanging baskets 41cm last when filled up before requiring refilling .The question assumes it is not raining and dry Philip

philip

Hello, I'm afraid it is difficult to say as it will depend on how many plants you have in the basket, or how big (and thirsty) the root system is. It will also depend on the weather as on hot days the plants will be taking up more water than on cooler days.

Hanging basket plants Hi Can you advise on which plants will give a classic look in my hanging baskets? Not keen on Petunias. Would like ideally a white look, although I do like Pelargonium 'April Hamilton'. What plants would you suggest that would compliment these plants, -not after lots of different vibrant colours. Can you also suggest how many plants per basket, as I would like a good display, and have quite large wicker baskets. Many thanks Julia

Julia Moss

Hello Julia, Most of the bedding we sell comes in collections of mixed colour. We do sell however a collection of white Pelargoniums, which would look very stylish - just click on the following link to go straight to them. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/bedding/pelargoniums-collection-of-5-white-pelargoniums/classid.2000004680/ As for numbers, this will depend on how full you want the baskets to look and how big the baskets are. As a very general guide, I would try to plant between 5 - 9 plants in a 12" (30cm) basket. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Hi Helen, I Ihave just placed my order as your suggestion below, looks exactly what I had in mind, but I have just read about them and all seem to be upright growing, .....with this in mind would they be suitable for hanging baskets?

Julia Moss

Hello again Julia, You can still plant the upright Geraniums in a hanging baskets, but they will look softer with something trailing around them. There isn't a trailing variety in the collection, but if you want a more cascading effect then perhaps you could also include some trailing Fuchsias http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/bedding/fuchsia-trailing/classid.2000012484/ Best regards, Helen Plant Doctor

Coping with holidays

Coping with holidays

For most gardeners, the main drawback of taking holidays away from home is the adverse affect it has on the garden. The dread of returning home to find knee-high grass, pest- and disease-ridden fruit and vegetables and container plants burned to a crisp.
