I thought I'd post a little update on the hanging basket, which I planted a few weeks ago now.
I began with some rather bedraggled Dichondra 'Silver Falls' - left neglected on the shelf at my local garden centre, and an old basket which had long since lost its inners.
I used some cheap hessian to make a new liner, and lined this again with old bits of plastic bag, then I filled up the whole thing with multi-purpose compost, mixed with some water-retaining granules (something that I generally reserve for hanging baskets only but which I now wish I'd used in every pot)! You can get the how-to here.
Here's how it looked when I planted it up in the last week of June.
I haven't watered it much since then, because of the granules, and it's gone bonkers
