I have various hooks hanging from my front porch where I would like to hang some flowers...I bought a petunia arrangement last year not knowing and it died quickly. What kinds of plants should I look for for a porch with a lot of sun?

Some good choices for a hanging basket in a sunny front porch would be portulaca, verbena, fuschia and brachycome. These will need watering almost daily and would benefit from your spreading some time release fertilizer in the pot such as Osmocote this spring to last all summer. Put the backets out in mid to end of May, but always watch for those late Vermont frosts.
