    I have 4 Tumbelina Belinda Petunia Tumbelina Belinda | J Parker Dutch Bulbs
    Saw them in Maria colour in the Sutton’s newsletter, then came across them on a market, had to give them a try. So, silly Q, if you’re planting them in a hanging basket like this Plantopia Hanging Basket: Product Review - Gardening Products Review with the holes in the side, would you put them through the holes and other more upright stuff in the top? Or plant them in the top and ignore the side holes and just let them tumble over the sides?
    I prefer this style of hanging basket as it has a bit of a reservoir at the bottom rather than water just peeing out! With a cut off pop bottle upside down, you can get the water where it’s needed :)

    We have the easy fill baskets and also some Tumbelina. I will be putting Tumberlina and other trailers including Nepeta in the sides and top and an upright in the middle. I always fill my baskets full and they trail to the floor.

    @daisybelle if it was me planting I think I would plant them at the top to hang down over the lower plants so you will be able to see them...

    Yay, one vote each way! I went with tumbelina in the sides, trailing and upright lobelia in the top. Green woolly liners from boyes and the little clip in ‘doors’ on the hanging basket are holding everything in nicely :dbgrtmb:
