Q.What Plants Would Flower For A Spring Hanging Basket?
My daughter and friends have a south east facing student house in Coventry. Last year, they successfully grew trays of hardy succulents and a tub of mixed bulbs. They tried a hanging basket, but it was only just coming into flower when they left in early June. What plants would be suitable for them to create a basket that would give them cheerful colours and maybe even scent through from Easter to early June?
