Recipe for a Summer Hanging Basket
inspired by our French style show gardens
FRENCH TRICOLOUR BASKET
It’s almost Garden Show time here at Lifestyle and to whet your appetite we have planted up a basket in the colours of the French flag, because that’s what this year’s show gardens are about – all things French!
Rather than planting in strict blue, white and red stripes, we went for an explosion of the colours of the French Tricolour (or a good bottle of French bubbly!) to extend an invitation to you to visit our very exciting show from Saturday, the 16th of February – you are sure to be surprised and inspired…
For the basket featured we chose plants that like to be in full sun and will need watering daily. The basket featured is a 40cm Petit Lady hanging basket sold with a coir liner. All the plants used are currently available in seedling trays or colour bags in the garden centre.
There’s nothing quite like a beautiful hanging basket of colourful plants next to an entrance, lining a pathway or adorning a veranda, to brighten up your day. We have put together a basic guide to help you plant up your own hanging baskets…
