Planting Plan Options:

  • 3/3/3 on 10” baskets in 8-10 weeks. This is Proven Winners' planting plan.
  • 2/2/2 in 10” baskets is very doable in 9-11 weeks.
  • 3/3/3 in 12” baskets in 9-10 weeks.
  • 2/2/2 in 10” uprights in 8-10 weeks
  • 3/3/3 in 12”-14” uprights in 8-10 weeks

The big difference between an upright and a hanging basket is 2 weeks of "cascade time"
which allows for the additional grow time to cascade over the edge of the hanging basket.
