Anybody know where to buy a flexible rubber plug for stoppering drainage holes in planters?

Maybe for a water feature? 


See original post

 That had been my initial assumption ... and then the poster said


"...Again, do I place the sealant over the inside or outside of the planter? I assume the outside if the planter is already full - LOL! - but is it more effective on the inside if the planter's empty?"


To me that sounds as if it's planted up 

Garden higher than house

I agree ... you need professional advice ... don't just try to 'dig it up and move it back'  .... the water table is likely to be higher than the level of your home and you could end up with serious flooding/damp problems affecting your house and those of any neighbours.

Hope  you feel better soon Clari 


I've had a wander  around the garden and picked some sweet peas (thank you Wonky) and am now on the sofa with my breakfast ... OH has gone to work. 


A bit later on I'm going to assemble a fish pie for our supper ... I've also got a stack of paperwork that's been waiting to be sorted/shredded .......... I'll start ploughing my way through that over the next few days.

Morning Hosta   I love the very early morning at this time of year ... Beautiful light and wildlife about not expecting to see humans 


So where are you thinking of putting the iris ... Up by the pond?

Definitely improving thanks Liri ... At least I can hobble a bit now. 


Im going to try to make use of the enforced "leisure" by sorting and shredding some paperwork over the next week or so

Just wondering why you're sealing up the drainage holes if yours growing plants in the pots?

Dead Bonsai?

Whatever it is it looks pretty dead to me. 


If you don't have a compost heap or garden incinerator you could  put it in the rubbish bin?
