Keep your hanging basket plants watered all summer with these easy tips

0 3

The first thing you need to know is when to water your hanging basket. That is essential for keeping it healthy all summer. Your hanging basket may need to be watered daily for much of the summer, but you shouldn’t just guess whether or not your flowers need a drink. Instead, you can check the weight of your basket to see how hydrated the soil is. Dry potting mix is far lighter than potting mix saturated with water, so lifting the basket up just an inch or two should quickly let you know if it needs to be watered or if it is still heavy and hydrated.

If your hanging basket does need water, don’t just give it a quick mist. Instead, fully saturate the soil and continue watering until you see water running out the drainage holes at the bottom of the basket. This deep watering also helps prevent fertilizer salt build up, which can be an issue with hanging baskets as they generally require more frequent fertilizer applications than plants grown in ground.
