Hang in sun or shade area depending on variety
Bring inside if the night temperature is going to drop lower than 55
degrees F. Cool nights will stunt hanging basket flowers.
Fertilize every 10 days with a liquid fertilizer. Water with the
fertilizer solution until it drips through the pot.
Clean baskets by periodically breaking off old flowers, dead leaves, and
dead or dying wood.
IMPORTANT: Plants that need water will droop slightly. Water
hanging baskets with 1-2 gallons of water when very dry. About 1/2 - 1 gallon will
be enough normally. Make sure water drips all the way through. By feeling the
weight of the pot, with experience, you will also be able to tell when a plant needs
water. If the plant is moist all the way through, don't water it as watering too
often will rot plant roots and cause wilting. Reiger and non-stop begonias
overwatered will rot off.
Fertilize every 3-4 weeks with a liquid fertilizer
