I haven't seen big pots where the saucer could go on feet. I'm intrigued.,.

thanks Mine is against the fence so would need to box in. It's just difficult as its an essential item but ugly. I try not to put pots on the decking as they rot the decking faster but its ugly and letting the garden down.

But what would grow in tubs that would be ok for winter too?? Will show you view from conservatory. The messy item at the side is a makeshift log store but I seriously need a neat solution. I'm an iPhone user so if someone could open link and post my picture back in pls. Stand by.....

I have an oil tank on the decking next to my conservatory, albeit green its a hideous addition to a small back garden. No real option to move it! any ideas. Difficult as its on decking and I don't want messy screening that will only look good for the first year! Thanks

Weird spots - potatoes

This is a new one on me. I have potatoes in buckets on spent compost. This has bed done before with no problems but they have been slow and not grown as much as I would have hoped. But more importantly they have developed tiny spots( like rust spots). Any ideas, should I feed them with Tom feed?? 

this isn't blight as the plants are healthy another than the newly formed spots.
