Top 25 Flowers for Hanging Baskets

Adding a few hanging baskets to your house will create an attractive feature that will provide instant curb appeal. While planting your own basket is easy enough you can buy them from a garden center already planted and ready to hang. Just remember that hanging baskets need regular watering which can become quite a chore. As to which flowers are best for use in hanging baskets this article which I came across on the Garden lovers Club website has some suggestions.

Utilizing hanging baskets around your home or garden is a great way to create different levels for your space, as well as draw your guest’s attention. We’ve seen them work wonderfully hanging above front porches, as a way to welcome those entering the home, and we’ve seen them used within gardens as a way to create multiple levels, rather than only having plants in the ground or in pots.
