Filling plant pots

Posted: 19/04/2014 at 13:13

Hi , I am pretty new to this and looking for some tips on how best to fill up plant pots/containers for the garden. I have heard that it is best to put some stones/croc in the bottom for drainage and reduces the need for so much soil/compost. Can I put some bits of cardboard boxes to do the same idea as find the pots quite heavy to move and running out of stones. I have heard that cardboard is good for planting seeds at it rots away easily too. Any suggestions/help very much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello - I am new on here and newish to gardening too and any help is much appreciated. I have a load of dahlia tubers from last year, what should I do with them. Can I plant them straight out into pots now or is it too early? Also I have a miniture daffodil pot indoors that has finished blooming. Can I do anything with the bulbs or is it the end of them?

Many thanks.
