If I stand pots outdoors on soil overwinter do I need to water them?

Crocks in Pots - A Waste of Time ?

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 23:28

I've just started to use polystyrene (as noted by  Alan4711)  from packed goods and am breaking it up as 'crocks'.  definitely makes pots much lighter to move around and will observe if useful.

What plant is growing in my garden?

I agree it looks like one of the weeds I constantly pull out of soil and plantpots although I can't tell its size compared to a pound coin for example?

Good morning All, Too cold for the garden and even clearing out the shed, but wondering what foliage snails may NOT like to chomp on this year as my lovely full beds of marigolds looked like skeletons last year!

Thanks Lavender Lady I may try wooden lolly sticks and I think they're available in colours so if the name washes off at least I'll know what colour the plant will be?

Thank you all for your help with plant labels, I'll try using pencil instead of 'markers' and make a plan of what's where?

Permanent Markers

I'm putting more perrenials in my garden but after winter when I start to inspect my 'plot' I find labels with faded marks and no Idea what the narby plant is. I've tried a number of different 'permanent markers' to no avail, can you help?  Sueing the makers of the product under the Trades Description Act will not help my situation!
