Hanging Baskets Dead? Try This


Husband had a lot going on while I was gone for 5 days in the hospital.   I bet he didn't even know that there were two hanging baskets in the flower weed garden, poor man.  

I saw them when we first drove up and didn't say a word.  I mean what are two hanging baskets in the scheme of things.   It wasn't till the next day I decided to try and save them.

We were draining the little pool so he could mow the lawn and I put them in the water.  
The water covered their pots and I left them in there overnight.

By the next morning they are revived.  Probably not as glorious as when I first bought them but pretty none the less.

Give it a try!  

How's it going at your house?

That is what Bailey does when one of her houseplants needs a good watering, stick it in a bigger bowl of water. It works every time. I'm glad it revived your hanging baskets!

Petunias are among the hardiest summer annuals. Good job!

I hope you are healing from 5d in hospital :-)

Great tip! I am so sorry you ended up in the hospital! That is so scary. Take care and rest.
