I was given this flowering container garden as a gift. It came in a large hanging basket, but I didn't have a great place to put it and I wanted it to get huge - big enough to fill this large blue pot.
I filled the blue pot with potting soil, mixed with good all-purpose, slow release, fertilizer. This combination of flowering plants will need a lot of feeding to stay happy for the whole summer. That said, you want to follow the directions on your fertilizer and be careful not to over fertilize.
After I took the arrangement out of its plastic hanging nursery pot, I planted it in it's new pot and watered it in. After watering, I saw some places that needed additional soil, so I added that.
The combination is by Proven Winners and is made up of:
- Superbells® 'Yellow Chiffon' Calibrachoa
- Lucia® 'Dark Blue' Lobelia
- Supertunia® 'Bermuda Beach' Petunia
