I haven't needed the water from my butts until this month and the water has been left to stagnate all winter.
The water absolutely stinks - putrid. I am afraid to use it on my plants, in case it infects them with a disease or something, especially young plants.
I have a new, young Rhododendron and Camellia too, which I have been told I should not water with tap water as an alternative. (Sussex: chalky, alkaline)
Am I right in thinking I can just pop in some sort of tablet into the butts to clean them?
Or do I have to empty and scrub them?
Any tips would be absolutely brilliant thanks!
