Standing Pots in Water in a Tray

Posted: 06/06/2015 at 12:49

I have some potted plants with a 5 inch diameter standing in a large tray with a 2 inch depth

? What are the advantages and/or disadvantages in standing the pots in a depth of water

? If I do this so the plants can "drink " do I need to water from above as well

Dont you realise how lucky and priveledged you are to have a BB nest in your garden

Edds comments are as usual spot on but without wishing your child pain if she/he gets just one sting would that be so bad in the overall picture

BB s are part of the world we all live in and are vital to what you and I eat.

They provide Natural Food and not the killer plastic food from supermatkets
