The Q&A Archives: Window boxes and hanging baskets

Question: What are some of the best flowers to add to window boxes as well as hanging baskets?

Answer: Brenda,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

There are a lot of great options for flowers and foliage plants in hanging baskets. Some to plant this time of the year include trailing petunias, fan flower, impatiens, wishbone flower, narrow leaved zinnia, dwarf trailing sweet potato (large container), begonias, and purslane/portulaca.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
