Proper watering, especially during the summer, is a must. Check out how much, how often, and when you should be watering.

When should I water them?

The best time to water your containers is in the morning to give them enough time to soak up the moisture before the heavy heat of the day. Plants also absorb water faster during the morning.

How often should I water them?

In the heat of the summer you should be watering your containers and hanging baskets every day. On hot, windy or humid days you may need to water more than once. And on rainy days you may not need to water at all.

How much water should I give them at once?

Water your hanging baskets and containers until water begins to run out of the bottom of the container. If the soil is bone dry and the water runs through the bottom very quickly, repeat this process a couple times.

How do I know if I am over-watering or under-watering?

This can be tricky since the signs of over-watering or under-watering are very similar (yellowing of foliage). The best thing you can do is use the finger test before watering. Stick your finger 1-2″ into the soil…if it is wet, wait to water. If it is dry, water away.


Since plants in containers require frequent watering, nutrients in the soil will run out of the bottom of the containers over time. So in order to keep your plants happy and healthy you will need to use a fertilizer to replace the lost nutrients.

Pick up your favorite fertilizer and simply follow the label instructions!

We recommend Proven Winners Water Soluble Fertilizer

Your holiday arrangement is made up of cut greens that are no longer growing, so think of them like a vase of flowers. You can put them anywhere you want!



The cut greens are stuck into a base of aquafoam that has been saturated with water to keep them looking fresh. You will only need to water your arrangement if we have unseasonably warm weather or it looks like it's drooping or not as vibrant as it used to be.



This arrangement is made up of cut greens, so there is nothing alive to fertilize.
