Answer: The answer depends on what kind of plant it is and how impatient you are for that full look. Plants are placed quite close together in hanging baskets, much closer than they would be in the garden. It also depends on what size transplants you are using. Three mature pansies would fill a basket, but five small transplants would probably be needed to make it look nice early in the season. Try bringing the basket with you when you purchase plants so you can plan the perfect mix and composition.
