Pots , planters and compost

Posted: 22/02/2013 at 14:01

Thanks Darren thats helpful.

I have lavender, asters, herbs,  roses, penstimons and sweet peas later on, spring bulbs and  pansies in tub.sSo as much variety as I have space.   I did think maybe an allotment might take it but as its old and used up I wasnt sure but I suppose it will help break down clay soil or improve soil quality for someone else . Perhaps my veg will do better with fresh compost this year.It does get expensive changing it all so often  but my garden is limited and i try to put as many flowers as I can in it . Its a nice south facing garden and I have done well with tomatoes when its a good summer .Always looking to improve it now I have more time.

Cheers  Mo

Pots , planters and compost

I'm new to this forum and you may have been asked this many times  but here goes .I use pots and containers and grow plants and a few veg in them . My problem is space so firstly  how long can i use the compost before it need changing and secondly i do not now where to get rid of the spent compost when I change it . My garden area does not have the capacity to dispose of it around my plants as I have no room left. I cannot put it in the  green bin as they do not take soil . is there anywhere or any one who would want spent compost. I try to feed my pot plants with farmyard pellets to increase the use but I now have some plants that need repotting as they are pot bound. Help and suggestions on these points would be welcome .

Can  spraying whilst rose's are dormant help keep black spot at bay before the growing season
