Tumbling petunias make a great hanging basket display
Its May just about the perfect month for garden-lovers.
Theres so much to look forward to, including RHS Chelsea
(19-23 May), and a plethora of planty things to enjoy right now. The lawns, as you will no doubt have noticed, are growing with a vibrant spring energy, but after you have mowed, weeded, pruned back those spring-flowering shrubs
after flowers have faded, tended to the vegetable garden and washed down the garden furniture
, its time to create hanging baskets
! Think of them as complete gardens displayed in cascading splendour rather than just a few plants bunged into a basket. Your creation needs structure, colour, feed, water and lots of imagination.
