a couple of weeks ago i planted my three wicker deck baskets. they are located on the south side of the house, and receive morning and early afternoon sunshine. i choose full sun plants for these baskets and have enjoyed a different combination of flowers for the past two years.
this year, i chose white euphorbia to fill the planters, along with calibrachoa in coral pink to wave through the baskets. to trail from the baskets, i planted licorice plant and purple queen setcreasea. i chose this plant for it's color and leaf shape to add a bit of contrast to the baskets.
so far this year, the plants are thriving and require a nice watering every morning. the euphorbia has grown tremendously and gives a light feel to the baskets.
to fertilize the plants, i placed osmocote pot shots, two per basket, just under the surface of the soil.
