Ask Almondsbury: Basket and Patio Plants

If you’re short on space, or you don’t have a garden at all, hanging baskets and patio pots can still give you that essence of a flourishing garden area. In fact, by working with more limited space and through using each plants’ potential, you can create some truly stunning features to liven even the greyest of areas. Hanging baskets also make fantastic additions to gardens, giving you that height to play with – not forgetting patio plants to spruce up those tired or empty-looking corners.
