Making Hanging Baskets


Rewarding activities that encourage interest in growing plants and produce something that is both decorative and a floral display to be proud of.

Plant up a hanging basket with cuttings the children have grown. Fuchsias are easy to grow from cuttings and look good mixed with zonal and trailing geraniums. Wandering Jew (Tradescantia zebrina) has attractive foliage and also grows well from cuttings. If you have a local Botanic Garden with an Education Unit they may be prepared to help your class grow a wider range of cuttings and also set up the hanging baskets.
