This NEW hanging basket kit is the quick and easy way for you to create your own stunning hanging displays of flowers that will last throughout the summer months. We've hand-picked the very best combination of plant varieties to give fantastic contrast, texture, colour and scent, so you can bring the 'wow factor' to your garden without the need for costly pre-planted options.

Our Illuminations Shades hanging basket kit contains the following super plugs (seven in total):

  • 7 x Begonia ‘Illuminations’ Mixed: one of our best-selling bedding plants for summer colour, ‘Illuminations’ Mixed has large-petalled flowers in shades of apricot, scarlet, white and rose for incredible impact. It’s also an F1 hybrid meaning it’s naturally strong, robust and disease-resistant too.

The kit also contains a 14-inch diameter, black rattan hanging basket, and a 1kg pack of Coco Boost - simply add the brick to water and leave to absorb to create 15 litres of nutrient-rich, peat-free compost.

It's important to ensure that your hanging basket is watered regularly so it will continue to produce stunning blooms throughout the growing season; check the soil each day and water if necessary - it should be kept moist but not soaking wet.

We recommend that you remove dead flowers and foliage regularly to keep your display looking its best and to encourage more blooms.

Once established, use a liquid fertiliser once a week such as Marshalls Organic Liquid Flower Feed, to boost nutrients and encourage healthy flowers and foliage.

On receiving your hanging basket kit, we recommend that you plant it straight away to avoid the plugs drying out. If this isn't possible, open the packaging to allow the plants the breathe and place them in a warm, light location until you're able to plant them; we recommend that you plant within 3-4 days of receiving your kit.

How to plant

Puncture the plastic liner at the base of the basket to allow water drainage. Place the Coco Boost brick into a large trug, container or wheelbarrow and add 5-8 litres of water; once it has expanded, which takes approximately 20 minutes, fill the basket to just below the rim with the compost and lightly firm.

Place the plugs across the basket, ensuring you mix up the shades for the best effect. Make a small hole with your finger and push the plugin, then firm the compost around it. Water well and place the basket in a greenhouse or light, frost-free conservatory until the risk of frost has passed, then move into its final position - choose a sunny location for the best results.
