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

I have used acrylic sealant to bung up the drainage holes in terracotta pots. They have remained water tight for some years now. 

Its the same sealant used for sealing shower trays or outside window frames. I have also used it to repair frost damaged pots again with great success. Good luck !

Hazel, as you know I don't post often but read every day. When I needed help with my iPad freezing you helped me so much. I am really grareful for that and feel so sad you are leaving. Thank you for being so kind and sharing your knowledge. I'm sure you have lots of gardenening jobs to keep you busy. Take good care of yourself

Hi Runnybeak I managed to clean vases with all purpose kettle and iron descaler when everything else failed. Hope that helps

Wow that is an awful lot of hard work you have put into your garden. Keeping lawns in good condition isn't easy so your plan has worked well for you.

The pergolas are lovely and your roses will look beautiful covering them, bet you can't wait to get planting now. The little daffodils add a splash of colour a hint of things to come. 

Well done, hope it isn't too long before you can sit and have a cuppa and admire your hard work. Spring is on its way. Thank you for sharing

Have received your message via the laptop, managed to receive it on my iPad as well now. Thank you for taking so much time to help me. Just difficult to even type messages on  the iPad for some reason

Hazel thank you for the offer to share your solution, please can you tell me how to pm you?

Is it just the Message notice at the bottom of your post?

Sorry for silly question but never pm before on the forum. Many thanks

Thank you aym I have tried that again and still the same but only on the forum. Was going to install an Adblocker but as Hazel has tried that I won't bother.

It is a little frustrating but I love the forum and will just put up with it.  Maybe when Nora and the team are back after the weekend they might be able to help. 

Thank you again

Yes Hazel I have had the same problem for two weeks now. I have also done the usual ways of sorting it out including some advice given by Dove but it still remains. Good to know it isn't just my iPad.

Hope it's easy to sort out for someone a lot cleverer than me !!
