A big thanks to John Addison, lecturer at Bridgwater College and RHS judge, who shared his knowledge and skills with the people of Cannington demonstrating how to create the perfect hanging basket.
You may well spot some of these designs around the streets of Cannington.
The setting was the stunning botanical glasshouse at the Walled Gardens of Cannington. It was a beautiful summers evening.
We learnt about suitable compost, fertiliser and watering regimes, as well as other tips on how to keep the display going all summer.
In keeping with our national obsession of discussing the weather (a condition acutely affecting keen gardeners) there are reports coming in that we are in for a hot summer. So don’t forget to keep your baskets and planters well juiced!
