Large Cell Plants – Side Planting Hanging Baskets

In this blog we are hoping to help you successfully side-plant a hanging basket with Large Cell Plants.

Many people, both at home and professional growers struggle to plant hanging baskets with plants such as pansies that come with a large rooted base that we really don’t want to disturb.


The problem many people face is getting the plant through the hanging basket liner without creating too large a hole. It’s impossible to do this by feeding the roots through the liner and the problem feeding the foliage first is that there is a risk of damage to that.


With the Amateurs Answer Hanging Basket Liner, we have a great technique for applying a large cell plant through a basket liner without damage to the roots or the foliage and will allow you to leave a nice small hole that doesn’t allow excessive water drainage from your basket.
