How can I make hanging Flowers look great all season?

Meg KavanaghMerry MountJanet Pizaro


I love hanging lots of baskets of flowers of different varieties so I spend a good amount of money on them each year in April. Besides plenty of water and fertilizer regularly. In Nashville the summers get BRUTAL by the middle of July. Any other things I can do to keep them looking great all season??

    Try planting drought tolerant plants such as portulaca,and lantana.

    Give them a break in July, hanging them in the shade and misting them each morning and evening to cool them off and allow them to recover. I learned about plants when I read the book, The Secret Life of Plants.

    Water at night and do not let sit in hot sun all day. This might help
