Watterlogged soil, everything rotting

Posted: 30/12/2012 at 22:41

Hi there blueberry yep its all looking pretty soggy out there. I'm not in an owned garden either so have most stuff in pots, some in a shed, some in pair of mini plastic greenhouses and others just brazening it out on the patio, Think pots are good for damage limitation. Lawns are another matter!! Total bog ! Will have to be dealt with in spring when things are eventually drier (I hope!!) Good luck !

I have 5 trough shaped containers all needing a major overhaul. They have lots of evergreen colour = variegated ivy, thyme and hebe pinguifolia  but I need flowers to add colour preferably not bulbs but something that will last longer and not go over straight away. Thanks.

I know my husband used to use it on our Orchids and they rocketed - loved it. Must be good for plants that like filtered water ie a neutral pH

Theres a great range of patio sized Buddleias out there now and they provide colour and great nectar to attract butterflies. Grew in both my south and north facing gardens in Lincolnshire quite happily so east should be fine.
