Alan Titchmarsh often shares tips with Britons on how to look after their gardens and plants. With stricter lockdown restrictions having now been put in place in all countries across the UK, more Britons are spending time at home and in their gardens. Even those without gardens are embracing their green thumbs by purchasing indoor plants.
The gardening expert said some of the winter plants that can be included in hanging baskets are winter-flying pansies and ivy.
He also said you can include “little hebes” with variegated leaves and small height flowers on.
Alan recommended using those as a centrepiece for the basket.
For the edge of the basket, Alan said to use heucheras.
Alan pushed them around the edge of the hanging basket.
He added: “By the time you get to the end of your basket you’ll find you’ve got something outside the house which is a darned sight better-looking than those dead bedding plants sitting there right the way through the year.”
Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh will air at 10am today on ITV.
