When Do I Receive My Hanging Basket?

All hanging basket orders must be picked up in-store once you are notified by email that they’re ready. We wait until the temperatures are warm enough for them to thrive outdoors, usually around May 16th. We recommend picking up your baskets before May 31st.

How Do I Know If I Have a Sun or Shade Location?

A full sun location receives at least 6 hour of direct sunlight during the day, ideally between 9am and 5pm. This will ensure the best performance and health for your flowering plants.

A part sun/part she location has lots of light, but only intermittent direct sunlight throughout the day. Hung under an overhanging roof, partially under trees or other half covered spaces are ideal. The full basket should not receive full sunlight for long periods during the day.

Full shade locations still have lots of light, but do not have any direct sunlight during the day (9am to 5pm). Hang these baskets under trees, under covered patios, or against a covered north facing wall. 

How Do I Care for My Hanging Basket?

Your basket needs two basic things from you in order to thrive and look its best, water and food. 

Find out all the details from Jason in this short video!

Grab some water soluble flowering fertilizer, as it’s quick acting and easy for the plants to absorb. Going on vacation this summer? No worries! There are slow release fertilizers (14-14-14) that you can use before you leave, so that the kind neighbour who is caring for your plants while you’re gone doesn’t have to worry about anything more than just adding water. Plus, your baskets will greet you with exploding blooms when you return!

Watering your plants in the summer heat is crucial, and it’s best to do so before 9AM to make sure they’re ready for the hot sun all day. We recommend using a really nice sized watering can (at least a gallon) to make it easy on yourself, rather than taking multiple trips to the tap or hose.

Feel your basket when it’s dry and compare it’s weight to after you’ve watered. This can help you determine if it needs a drink or not. You’ll probably have to water every day in the summer, but this also gives you a chance to admire all of the beautiful blooms!

When you water make sure to thoroughly soak the soil until a small stream of water comes out of the bottom of the basket. This means you’ve successfully flushed the old fertilizer and water out of your basket, and made way for the fresh stuff.

With these tips and tricks you’re sure to have a gorgeous flowering basket all summer long, so kick back and enjoy!
