I loved owning a greenhouse business. It really helped me during the doldrums of winter to avoid a bad case of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Even while the snow and cold surrounded me, inside the greenhouse I was warm enough to work on the coming growing season and my array for vegetables and flowers. Included in this bounty of plants was a collection of some gorgeous hanging baskets.

What I hope to do with this post is to give you examples of what works well in hanging baskets not only alone, but in combination with other varieties.
