Hanging baskets and wall mangers can provide colour and interest through the cooler months. Choose hardy plants such as dwarf evergreen shrubs, conifers, heuchera, ornamental grasses, heathers, violas and pansies are perfect for planting now. Mix the colours, shapes and textures for the best effect. 1 Start with trailing plants around the edge 2 Add a taller plant in the centre for height and structure 3 Fill in the gaps with flowering or foliage plants.
Self watering hanging basket. The link shows putting a small pot in center and filling with water but I like the water bottle idea shown in illustration..remember to line bottom with plastic bag (between the soil and fiber or moss)
