What we would like to share here are a few tips on how to plant into these baskets:

To get a full, ball effect, choose compact, bushy varieties of annuals.  When mixing a variety of plants, the most important quality of a hanging bouquet is it's trailing habit, covering the sides of the container with blooms or green foliage.

Plant taller varieties in the center and those with trailing or vining habits around the edges.

Enhance the spherical shape by pinching off the main shoots of the plants when they reach the desired height.  This simple chore encourages growth of side shoots.  Rotate the hanging container regularly.

Once a week is best for rotation so that all flowers receive equal exposure to sunlight.  Be vigilant about deadheading spent blooms and pinching leggy plants.  Check moisture often especially on hot days.
 
With a little planning ahead and few weekly duties, your hanging baskets will be beautiful and successful.
