How to Plant a Hanging Flower Basket

Hanging baskets traditionally utilize three types of flowers to thrill, spill, and fill. The center will usually have a taller, more showy flower or foliage to attract visual attention. Around this center display, you can usually find various filler flowers that add a variety of colorful blooms and make your basket appear full. Then, trailing and cascading varieties are added around the edges to create a spilling effect. Use this hanging basket flower recipe with your favorite flowers for a basket that won’t disappoint.
