I really wanted a hanging flower basket this year, but found the ones at the store to be too expensive. After looking at a few that I liked, I bought my own flowers and planted one myself.
I do this all the time, but to date, I've stuck with one type flower per basket. Your basket looks great and you have given me new ideas. Thanks!
I did this with geraniums this year. The completed ones at the store were $29.99. I bought 3 smaller geraniums for $12.00, already had the pot and soil. Looks great for pretty much a third of the price. :)
I had discovered that those baskets were a lot of work after making the arrangements so I would appreciate any helpful suggestions for this concern. It seemed like I was watering the baskets and flower box for that matter before I left for work and after I returned from work and yet my flowers seemed to die anyway so any suggestions on keeping them looking well would be helpful!
