Filling tomato baskets
See how James Douglass creates his hanging baskets with Tomato plants.
1. Soak Plants
Water the plants before you put them into baskets to ensure they are soaked through to the roots.
2. Check Placing
Check the placing of where you'd like your plants, making sure there's enough room remembering they will grow. 2 is a recommended amount.
3. Remove From Pot
Carefully remove the plant from its pot, being careful not to damage the roots.
4. Dig a Well
Using either your hand or trowel, create a small well big enough for your plant to sit in.
Make sure to firm the soil around the edges, making sure to leave no gaps.
Plant your second plant.
Make sure to add soil to the top of your basket if needed.
Remember to label your plants to make it easier to identify what varieties you're growing and insert it into your basket.
Give the baskets a good soaking of water until it is draining out the bottom. You can always hang the basket up and then water if you feel like you will struggle to lift it.
10. Hang Your Basket
Carefully hang it to a secure structure, usually a bracket or hook.
You can always add a feed to help with the establishment of your plants and encourage better growths. Remember to water your baskets regularly as they dry out quicker then soil in the ground.
