All good info on ere folks just the job, and oh by the way do builders use any type of grit, you know the type for putting on top of the pots to help keep in the moisture as i find the G/c very expensive AND the sun is almost out today ere in Norfolk.

Lulu, just another point,when it flowers if its blue and you want to repot or pot into garden then you need to make sure it has acid soil (lots of Aluminium in the soil )   5.5 to 5 PH , Mauve colour is acid to neutral soil, Alkaline for pink flowers and to enhance the pink just give a little limestone or chalk, if your garden soil is not acid then it will turn pinkish, and if you can ,only use rainwater.
