Hi there, Ive my petunias ready to plant into the hanging baskets and also some ivy, lobellia. I would like to achieve a ball of colour, any tips please?

Would I be better to go with just the petunias or would it look better with a mix.

Thanks in advance.

User hydro gel crystel



"Water Gel
Dramatically reduces the amount of watering required for plant containers and hanging baskets.

Water Crystals Gel or Hydrogel are small water crystals absorb and store water for plants. Reduce the amount of watering that your hanging baskets and plant containers need.

* They help reduce crop irrigation and watering needs in agriculture, home gardens, houseplants, container gardening and any type of organic gardening or organic farming.
* This gardening product dramatically increases the long-term, water holding capacity of soil for home and garden or farming.
* Its application improves soil structure in home and garden.
* Water crystals contribute to healthy plant life by reducing plant stress.
* Significantly increases the intervals between watering lawns, gardens, house plants, container gardens, trees, organic gardens and crop fields .
* Can be used extensively in horticulture, home and garden and organic gardening.

Each dry water crystal absorbs 400-500 times its weight in water. When hydrated, each water crystal turns into a gel to which plant roots are attracted for its moisture content. "
