Hanging baskets are often associated with summer blooms, but in fact, they also make a great addition to your business premises throughout winter too. As the warmer months have drawn to a close, now is the perfect time to switch up summer flowers with some hardy winter options. Planting flowers in autumn give new plants a few weeks to bed in before any cold snaps set in and ensure a long-lasting arrangement that will see you through until spring.
Take a look at our handy tips for creating hanging baskets for your business premises to add a touch of colour in the winter months.

Maintaining your winter baskets
Planting your winter baskets follows the same principles as summer planting. By choosing flowers that bloom beautifully together and that work well with trailing plants such as ivy, this will offer a stunning complement to your business frontage. In the winter, hanging baskets may not require as much watering compared to the summer months. However, it is crucial to ensure they don’t dry out completely. If you’ve had a prolonged spell of rain, checking the basket is not full of water will also improve its longevity.
Regular feeding and watching out for little pests will also keep your plants in the best condition. It is also advisable to deadhead when required, as this will keep the basket looking fresh and not overcrowded.
