Question: If I miss the spring planting season for my patio planters, is there a fast-growing solution for beautifying my patio for summer dinner parties?
Answer: So your spring was busy and, before you know it, it’s June and guests are coming over on the weekend. You want your patio looking bright and beautiful; your planters, however, are barren, and quickly planting up some small annuals for colour is just not going to cut it. What now?
Head down to your local garden centre and pick yourself up three things: a lovely hanging basket, a large bag of planter-box soil, and a box of granular 6-8-6 fertilizer.
Garden centres always have a great selection of lush and colourful hanging baskets in June, or anytime spring through mid summer, for that matter.
What we’re going to do is take that hanging basket and “drop” it into your container on your patio.
