Container Garden Hint
We all enjoy pretty containers sitting on the porch, patio, by the pool or in our flower beds. However, many times we plant the pot up and set it directly on the concrete, wood or in the dirt. Over time the pot seals to the surface it is sitting on and no longer allows water to drain out through the drain hole at the bottom of the pot.
Your plants may be showing signs of poor drainage or over watering by being spindly, thin, or having yellow leaves that drop off the plants.
If you feel this has happened with your pots you can raise them by placing them on pot feet, bricks, blocks of wood, or a raised plant saucer to enable there to be a space between the bottom of the pot and surface that it was sitting on.
Such a simple fix to help ensure your containers will drain correctly and your plants will thrive!
