How to get rid of excess soil?

Posted: 06/10/2012 at 13:37

Recycle - I would advertise it on your local freegle site - someone will be grateful and come and take it away for you.

Good ideas above - interplant with spring/autumn bulbs to add colour and interest

Bird seed falling in pond

Is there no where you could move the feeder to - it wouldn't have to be too far from the pond - just enough. Is it a push into the ground spike or concreted in? I am afraid I wouldn't go with the previous suggestion as you would have not only seed but fat in the filter too - ugh but you are going to have to move the feeder.

i would put some large size gravel or a couple of bricks in the bottom. Soil as the tree will be in there for some time John Innes no3 - a soil based compost would be good. You will need to renew the top 10+cm of compost with fresh annually and add fertiliser as the plant will rely on you for all its nutrients.

Any little bumps/swellings further down the stem  that might be new shoots under way? Have you cut down on the watering?
