Looking after your Spring basket

Your spring basket is made up of mixture of spring plants that all like a cool spot. Choose a cool windowsill, porch or sheltered patio and your planter will bring colour to the darkest days.

As these are mainly woodland plants try to avoid strong direct sunlight which may scorch the young leaves and choose a spot that is shaded for part of the day. A north, west or east facing spot is ideal, and it is best to keep your planter away from any radiators if indoors.

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, in a cool room once a week may be enough and outdoors you will normally be able to rely on rainfall. 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.)

It is a good idea to keep pinching out the primula flowers as they fade to encourage the young buds. Once all the flowering plants are over, the foliage plants will still continue to put on new growth and should grow to fill the basket over the summer months before the flowering plants make a return next spring.

If the leaves or flowers start to droop, water thoroughly immediately and they should soon recover.
