Every Summer I can’t wait to get a hanging basket and have it on my porch all Summer. I was super excited when Proven Winners Direct sent me this basket to put together myself and arrange the basket myself to review for gardening ideas.

Gardening ideas with the Proven Winners box
When you get your box, it comes with everything you need. You need to remember these are live plants and they need to be planted as they need watering.
I put the dirt into the basket first and then mixed in the fertilizer. I then put them in the basket, sorting out the colors to distribute them. Be sure to read the tags of the flowers so you know how each flower will grow and bloom so you put it in the right location.
I then hung the basket on my porch using the swivel hanger.
And then I added the water. I waited on putting the water in, so that I could lift the basket easier. This big gorgeous basket and will need lots of water to keep the soil consistently moist (and not soaking wet)
I was watering my plant, but the flowers started to die and I got concerned I was doing something wrong. Don’t fear! Look below.
The orange arrows show where new flowers are going to be blooming.
The blue arrows, is where the dead needs to be trimmed back about an inch and you can also pull off any dead blooms.
Continue to water. Twice a day if it’s really hot in your area. I water twice a day 1/2 gallon each time. There is a hole at the bottom of the basket so excess water will run out.
After a week of watering my flowers, look at them! There are many flowers blooming and they are thriving.
