Plants for Poor thin soil on builders rubble

Posted: 01/05/2017 at 19:16

Nasturtiums grow on the poorest ever soil, as do buddlia , they will grow in any crack of the pavement. 

Theres lots more, can't think off hand but others will.

What plant?

Exactly! They will all flourish afterwards. If it s only burnt the surface it hasn't killed the roots, if it has killed the roots then it's killed the worms.  Worms are very good for a lawn.

Cut the dead flowers off and put in in a pot twice that size, or even better in the garden, it isn't going to  flower next year in that tiny pot. They are not really suitable as houseplants, put it outside, especially if you get rain, it will love it.
