Herein, how do you set up a hanging basket?
- Choose a basket. When it comes to baskets, size—or in this case, volume—does matter.

- Build a base layer of potting soil.
- Insert a water reservoir.
- Cut the liner and add plants.
- Continue planting to the top.
Also, how often should you water hanging baskets? In general, water plants in hanging baskets when the soil surface becomes dry to the touch. On hot, sunny days it may be necessary to water once a day. When watering hanging baskets, be sure to apply water until water begins to flow out the bottom of the container.
In this manner, should I line my hanging basket with plastic?
Plastic bag: Though it's not as environmentally friendly, a plastic bag works as a hanging basket liner in a pinch. If your plants like a drier climate, only line the basket's sides. This allows moisture to freely drain to the bottom. For plants that like to stay moist, line the inside of the whole hanging basket.
How many plants can I put in a 14 inch hanging basket?
For 12-14-inch baskets, you can put anywhere between three to five plants. You want to make sure they are evenly spaced around the basket so that it's not overcrowded once the plants begin to grow. Five to seven plants can go in a 16-18-inch basket. A deeper basket works well if you are adding several plants.
