Different Options for Growing Trailing Plants
Trailing plants are typically grown in hanging baskets, window boxes, tall pots and planters. Often the location will determine which container is most suitable, although hanging baskets are the most popular. They can be hung almost anywhere and simply require a hook.
Different Trailing Plant Types
Plants vary in their trailing habit and are grouped as either semi-trailing or trailing. Not all plants used in baskets and boxes are trailing, mounding plants also work well when used in a suitable combination.
Think Light Exposure!
Will the plants receive full sun, part sun or shade? If you are unsure go outside and check the location throughout the day. Select your plants accordingly as true sun lovers will not bloom abundantly if they suffer from a lack of sunlight, and shade lovers will be stressed and burn in full sun, which again will cause a lack of blooms.
Design Your Own
Select plants with similar vigor to avoid plants overtaking and smothering others. Our Proven Winner combination baskets have been carefully trialed to ensure combinations intergrow harmoniously.
Caring for Your Basket or Container
Like with all plants, some require more care and others less. If you are the type of gardener that enjoys a reason to get outside, a basket that requires deadheading might be ideal. Others might not have the time or inclination, and low-maintenance plants might prove more suitable.
