These instructions are sent with the plant gift

Your planted basket is made up of hardy plants that will do best either outdoors, in a cool room or porch. They don"t mind a bit of frost but try to protect them from very heavy frost or snow.

Outdoors you probably can allow the rain to do your watering, but try to make sure your planter does not sit in a puddle.If you are keeping your planter indoors, aim to keep the compost damp not dry or soggy.

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 the flowering plants with summer bedding plants in the spring.
