Vines for hanging baskets

Posted by gardenunusual 5a (My Page) on

Hi all,

I have a bunch of seeds to start for my hanging baskets. Can these types be used for them?

cardinal vine
black eyed susan vine
morning glories
clitoria vine
sweet peas

I haven't decided yet what else will be going in, this is my first time trying this.

An idea I have is to dangle chains so they can climb down them.

What do you think?

many thanks

Of the ones you listed I think that the nasturtiums, black eyed susan and clitora vines would be best suited for hanging baskets.

Thanks Karyn!

RE: Vines for hanging baskets

What you want are things that are trailing, not things that are climbing. Things like you've listed, other than the nasturtiums, will climb UP, not DOWN.
