Help with soggy soil

Posted: 08/07/2016 at 14:10

I think I'd start by checking the drains/water main/soakaways.

If all OK there you'll need to excavate to find how far it extends and break up or remove the clay. It will still be a hole full of water, whatever you plug it with, otherwise.

I know nothing of arum lilies but plants that have had the flower removed and a stalk left behind look a bit odd

Hi Cloggie

Mostly it gets spread around the garden. It makes a great mulch in spring, before the ground dries out (or any time so far this summer). This lot will be spread around and behind the bamboo. Lots goes out around the trees and shrubs surrounding the meadow. 

Foxglove in pots

Posted: 07/07/2016 at 21:42

Most foxgloves are biennial, sow and germinate one year, flower the next, then die after setting seed to start again.

The most common one, Digitalia purpurea, is a native plant hardy anywhere in the UK.

You can grow them in containers, if the container is very small the foxglove will be small
