Is anyone else hanging baskets doing really bad this year.
mine started off strong and i had only Surfina in them hoping I would get a big ball of flowers, i seen my neighbours do this and it looked great.
I water every 2 day depending on the weight of the basket , and when planting added granular fertiliser, for the last 2 months i use tomato food to give them a feed every 2 weeks. dead head what is needed.
They are at the front of the house and get sun from early morning until about midday and then are in shade mostly, the front of the house is North-east facing.
This problem seems to happen me every year to be honest, is there something i am doing or could it be direction house is facing? cross wind etc? the way i water, i always use the shower setting of the hose pipe and aim low centre of the basket.
my tomato plants also the leafs are all curling and they are not producing as much fruit as other years.
i think i am just cursed this year!
