Casa Quickie: Don't Be a Basket Case

While hanging baskets are a beautiful way to display your Summer blooms, they also require more frequent watering. That is, unless you plan ahead. Or should I say, unless you "plant" ahead?
Before you plant your flowers, place a small pot in the middle of the hanging basket. Make sure this pot has a drainage hole, so you don't get a too-soggy hanging basket. After you place the small pot in the middle of the basket, plant it as usual, with high-quality potting soil and flowers. Next time you water, the pot will hold more of the water, so you won't have to water your hanging basket as frequently.
