From the beginning of spring, having annuals and blooming flowers will brighten your garden and your life. Annuals can be grown in hanging baskets, which can be filled with flowers and foliage, and won’t take up a spot in your garden. It’s a great way to save space and to appreciate these beautiful flowers which only last for part of the year. If you’re interested in filling a hanging basket, March or April tend to be the best times of the year. Flowers you might consider include Impatiens, Begonias, Cosmos, Geraniums, or Snapdragons. These flowers come in a variety of colors and different combinations will compliment each other better.
Whichever annuals you choose, be sure to water your hanging baskets daily in hot weather, and once every two or three days in rainy or moderate weather. This will ensure their survival through the summer months.
