help.. plug plants

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 11:41

well, I can see both sides really...this is 2nd yr I have had plug plants from van meuwen & both times I lose afew...I`m in cambs & pot them up & are under a lean to roof ...they either just die or rot...yet not overwatered...they look far too small to plant out... fed up now so will not order anymore...too much losses..

Water butt

ha haaaaa... I have two butts .. one connected to shed roof.. that fills relatively slowly but the other one is by our lean too which fills daily if raining...I got soo fed up emptying it that I now just leave it to overflow onto garden...I guess its different if its near the house due to possible dampness... if so then easiest thing is to move it..

I was overloaded during the summer with rain water & no need to water garden as already done.. I bet next year we will be saying theres not enough in the butts...
