Festive Flower Basket
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
Your planted basket is made up of plants that look good at this time of year- and will be do very well in a cool room or enclosed porch.
Choose a cool windowsill, table, or enclosed porch and your planter will bring colour to the darkest days. It is best to keep your planter away from any radiators.
The amount you need to water, will depend upon where you keep it. In a warm room you may need to water several times a week, but. In a porch you will need less. Try to keep the compost damp - not dry and not soggy. (Please be careful when watering your planter as the baskets are not completely water tight - you may wish to place your planter on a plastic mat or tablecloth to protect your furniture.)
If the leaves or flowers start to droop, water thoroughly immediately and they should soon recover. It is a good idea to keep pinching out the flowers as they fade to encourage the young buds and to avoid mildew. Once all the flowering plants are over you can still enjoy the foliage, and you can even replace plants and make a seasonal display.
