Spacing:

12 per 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in a bed/ border. A good rule of thumb when planting a hanging basket is to use one plant per inch of basket diameter - so 12 plants per 12 inch (30cm) basket. Strong-growing plants such as Fuchsias and Geraniums require more space, so reduce to 5 plants per 30cm 12 inch (30cm) basket. When planting out in the ground, you can space the plants even further, as there is not such a need for a dense display. Increase to 6 inches for most annuals and 8 inches for the strong growing plants.

Care Guide

Water often

Ensure that the soil does not dry out for too long. This will often call for a deep watering once a week. However, during hot, dry spells, this can require you to water the plant every day, especially if the plant is in a hanging basket or pot.

Full Sun

Flowering annuals should be planted somewhere they receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.

Feed Regularly

Feed every two weeks with a general purpose plant food. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png
