2008 was the first year that we had hanging baskets in Bandon so we were very much the novices at how the process would work, eg planting, hanging, watering, feeding and not to mention the choice of plants and colours.
Each time we visited other towns with hanging baskets last year, we examined what plants they were displaying and how they looked compared with ours. We hope that our baskets will look much more impressive this year. We have armed ourselves with a sturdy pump that can even suck water out of the river so watch out for the watering team who will be much in evidence in Bandon during the summer months.
