No silt or a little silt?

Posted: 21/10/2013 at 09:29

Sara, baskets also  stop invasive plants taking over the world to some extent. You can lift them out basket and all if you're strong enough.


it can be difficut to get plants established in a plastic pond if there's little or no soil at the bottom

Not everyone wants the same thing from a pond any more than they want the same thing from a garden.

Some want the sterile version, clear water, no soil, plants in baskets, fountain and fish. Others prefer the wildlife friendly version. There's no right or wrong. 


Box shrubs

Hi Chris, I don't know box blight from any other box problem but I'll get you back to the top of the forum

Can anyone help

it's not deadly nightshade, it will be poisonous though. Don't eat it but don't panic. It's a common garden weed.

Deadly nightshade, Atropa belladonna is a much bigger plant and rather beautiful. It would be quite garden-worthy if it wasn't so poisonous

Sutherlands Gold sounds good, I'll give it some thought. Thanks Verdun

I don't do long term plants in pots Matt, I just keep them in there for a season when they look good then plant out and get something else for a pot. They are big shrubs and might start to look a bit pinched in a pot for too long

Can anyone help

looks like one of the nightshades. Woody possibly

If it's not too late, chop them back before they seed all over the rest of the garden
