How to Water a Hanging Plant

By: Danny Lipford

Hanging baskets are a simple way to instantly introduce color and create interest. However, they can also be hard to get to in order to water. To make watering easier, place a small funnel in the pot with the spout inserted in the soil.

You’ll find it easier to pour the water into the funnel mouth and the water will get down to the roots where the plant really needs it. Allow the plant to grow around the funnel.
