Calibrachoa in hanging basket
Due to its pending growth it is strongly advisable to plant Calibrachoa Callie® 'Sunrise' in hanging baskets. Using fresh potting compost arrange the plants about 10 cm apart in the basket. Plant alone or you can make beautiful combinations with plants such as Lobelia, hanging Geraniums and Verbena. The stems will grow well between other plants and hang gracefully over the edge of the basket.
