Tips from Roxanne DePalma

Create a Party in your own yard with Garden Party Hanging Baskets.

The first step is choosing the right flowers for the right season. On the west coast we are thinking bulbs!

Look for plants that have several stems as those provide the highest producing growth. She looks for plants with about a 3 inch container.

Roxanne offers her Garden Party Hanging Baskets with an Aquasav special lining. This allows the soil in the hanging baskets to stay at the best moisture level possible for flowers and plants. Baskets lose moisture quickly and the Aquasav relieves some pressure of them drying out so quickly. Roxanne suggests a little fertilizer, of your choice will help everyone develop a green thumb, about a tablespoon. These extra nutrients will provide volume.
