Best Plants for Hanging Baskets
In our previous blog we looked at the best compost to use for your baskets – so this time around we’ve picked out 8 of our favourite plants to fill them, and the reasons why we think they’re the perfect choice.
We stock a wide selection of pots in many materials including quality 'Life Time Guarantee' Terracotta from Yorkshire Flower Pots, 'Superior Quality' Fibreclay Planters and Troughs from Woodlodge and a variety of traditional high quality natural stone and clay pots.
Oak Planters (ex wine and/or whisky casks) are a regular stock item in various sizes.
Choosing the right compost can be a finely balanced decision, considering the complex blend of minerals, nutrients and organic matter, judged so that plants perform at their best.
We stock a comprehensive range at very competitive prices, including Multipurpose Compost, Topsoil, Grit and Bark, all of which can be delivered nationwide within 2 working days.
Our turf is a medium grade turf with a mixture of amenity turf grasses, to provide a hard wearing surface of good appearance for domestic gardens, play areas etc.
Turf is only cut to order, so please allow a few days (frost permitting), from placing your order. We'll send you a progress email as we process your order.
In support of your landscaping, garden design and build projects, we would be delighted to offer advice and suggestions. We provide an extensive range of mature and unusual plants. On request, we would be happy to quote for the installation of all products.Ask about Landscaping
Vertigrow opened its gates to customers for the first time in 1998. Over the years, Andrew Williamson, the owner, has strived to increase and improve the stock we have on site. As a working nursery we pride ourselves on the quality of our plants. We welcome our customers to the site where our knowledgeable staff are more than willing to give you their advice and find a plant for every situation.
Throughout the year, Vertigrow stocks over 1000 varieties of shrubs and perennials and is renowned for its ever increasing selection of mature trees.
Our large tree and shrub range is extensive, with mature specimens being imported from Europe and New Zealand as well as local suppliers.
Our stock reflects changes with the different seasons. In the Spring and Autumn our Nursery is awash with colour from bedding plants that are competitively priced and of excellent quality - we offer the service of making up hanging baskets for all our customers and always have ready-made baskets in stock.
If you were to visit us in the Autumn you would find nearly every type of hedging, fruit tree and soft fruit that you might require. If you can't find the plant you were looking for we will always try to find an alternative or source you one from one of our many suppliers.
We welcome inquiries from the public, landscape designers and contractors alike. We aim at all times to have the highest quality of stock, a personal approach and a friendly atmosphere to ensure that customers who have visited us once will feel they want to come back time and time again.
