Posted: 24/04/2014 at 13:18

..I no longer use crocks...however, for containers remaining outside all winter, I do put them on pot feet...

...please be aware, one of the websites quoted on this is still vulnerable to Heartbleed... according to Norton Internet Security...

...I have checked out most of the others listed and they are reporting as all o.k... but this one does not, currently....

..I don't like being alarmist about this, but I thought I would start this thread in case anyone finds a website, especially a gardening one that we may order plants from, that is still vulnerable to this devastating security breach...

...I have found one already, namely

this has been mentioned in ''the good guys'' thread and I have left a note on there about it...

..thank you Edd.. that's good to know as I've just potted up my tomato plants in there.....  I too have blown on them sometimes when I 've found them outside and it's quite amusing to see them scatter.. poor little things... I thought they were benign...and useful to us...

Climbing plants or clematis for pot and obelisk

..a common complaint...but it can be dealt with quite easily.... if you can manage to excavate a planting hole at least 12 inches square, 18 is better... then you should be able to get a container grown plant in there...get it off to a good start and the roots will find their way through any rubble...  one quarter of my garden has this problem but like yours, with a good loam underneath... you just need to help the plants get to that loam...
