Illinois, United States
Need help big time! I am I guess what you would call a by the book gardner. I have a problem. I have purchased wire baskets, sphagnum moss, and dirt. Now is where the problem comes in. I live in Chicago and have many books with ideas for hanging baskets yet most of the flowers required are nearly impossible to get in my area also most dont say where the hanging baskets should be placed. They seem to have a mix of flowers some for full sun, some for shade, and some for part shade. All in the same basket I dont get it. I always thought fuschia needed to be in the shade or part shade yet its in one of the baskets I have chosen. The last time I bought a bleeding heart fuschia it lasted about a week. Please help if you know of a great book with flowers that arent nearly impossible to get your help would be greatly appreciated! The basket I am trying for will be in full sun most of the day and I realize will need almost constant watering. Please help!
