Some of the best plants for hanging baskets include Lotus Vine, Fuchsia, Cardinal Climber, Thunbergia, Nasturtium, Lobelia, Creeping Charlie, Lantana and Dwarf Morning Glory. You can order seeds online at: or by phoning toll-free (800) 888-1447. Since containers are watered more frequently, you should fertilize more often. Plan to use a half-strength liquid fertilizer about every 2-3 weeks during the growing season to keep your plants healthy and happy.
