What to do this week:13 August 2020 Sandra Ross
After heavy rain last week it’s timely to attend to our pots, check the drainage, make sure they are sitting on pot feet and draining freely.
You can use a chopstick to open the potting mix and help with drainage.
Pot feet will help pots drain freely
Check your garden for erosion after heavy rain. Spread a mulch to stop water run-off. Make swales to direct water.
