Gardening neophyte that I am, I always shelled out the cash for ready-made baskets. Next year I think I'll try filling all the now empty baskets myself. I really like the looks of the white one.

Graham Rice

Well, Diana, if you have all those empty baskets from previous years you can have a rare old time trying out all sorts of colors and color combinations. But always keep in mind the setting and the background. If your house is white or cream or painted in another pale color the white basket may not show up so well.

The petunia makes a great accent to garden...It is a very versatile flower that can be grown anywhere. They look so amazing in hanging baskets and window boxes..
