Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga and I am a professional gardener and today I am here to represent expertvillage.com. I am going to guide you step by step on how to plant the snapdragons either in pots or hanging baskets; basically this is very simple. I have already filled the pots with our potting soil and now what we are going to do for this particular pot, is we are going to select a couple of the flowers and we are going to start in the center so that you will be able to coordinate the other ones that go in the circular much better. You can even them out. So we did a little hole, plant that one there, get another one, the pink one, and just even it out. Another one here on the side and this is just awesome, fantastic. There we go, add some more soil evenly. Just be sure that everything is kind of tight and there we go. That is just beautiful. Of course, we are going to add a little bit of mulch. Adding the mulch is going to help maintain the moisture that he needs and remember every evening to check your pot because that is going to maintain the moisture that is required. Of course just before you go to bed, don't forget to water them that way you will be able maintain the moisture and they will be ready for another sunny beautiful day. Isn't that a beauty? Now we are going to start with our hanging basket. We are going to dig them here in the corner and it's the same procedure as your regular pot, so this is how we plant snapdragons in our basket. We've got two more to go. And one more in. We're done! We add some soil and of course, don't forget your mulch. They'll retain that moisture and they will be fantastic. There we go! This is how we plant snapdragons in pots and in hanging baskets. Come on guys, help me plant the rest of them.
