You must often have seen stunning flower baskets hanging in flower delivery shops. But the florist are not the only ones that can have these stunning baskets. Using some simple tricks you can create your own too.
- The easiest and no care baskets are those that contain succulents. Planting out drought tolerant succulents such as hens and chicks, sedum or echeveria is ideal. These are some of the flower breeds that do not dry out and require little to no watering even during summers.
- The classic geraniums go with almost everything. And once again they are a popular hit in sunny and hot environments. Combine the geraniums with blue lobelia and draping ivy for a classic looking porch hanging baskets. As opposed to a fruit basket these could be a great present as well which you can send via gift delivery.
- If you are looking for a wedding bouquet and want soft texture, go with swan river daisies, bacopa and asparagus. They are like snow in the sun and a great hit for a festive theme.
- For something a bit more on the lines of birthday flowers go for bright colors. Pair geraniums, swan river daisies, purple robes, petunias and marigolds for a beautiful red, yellow and purple look.
- Flower delivery boast of all types of hanging baskets, including any you may want custom made. For a classic arrangement that you can even pair with a hamper delivery to dear one, go with Victorians lilacs and Xtreme pinks.
- While purple is popular these days, it only look good in bright light. For something sunny go for sweet potato vines and fuchsias.
- A mix of colors in itself does not make a great impact, try adding plants or flowers with foliage. Pair them with ruby, Catalina blue and wax begonia with sweet potato vines for a classy but bright look.
- If you want only one kind of flower, go for calibrachoa aka million bells. They bloom in just about every color and can go with almost anything due to their heavy foliage. Whether you want a soft look or a bold one, million bells are one of the best choices for the minimalists.
- If you live in a hot environment, putting up hanging baskets with softer coloured flowers can cool down the place a bit. A combo of Tuscany lavender picotee, begonia and browillia will give the place a cottage-like feel to it. Try light pinks or blues as they give a cooling impact.
Hanging baskets could be made with almost any type of flower. The trick is to remember that these flowers need just as much love or care as the ones in your backyard nursery or the potted plants in your house for full effect.
