Planting Containers

Choose a suitable container with drainage. Line where appropriate with, coco fibre liner, moss and polythene or Juna liners.

Use a compost with water retaining gel or use a multi-purpose compost and add water retaining gel to it.

Select the appropriate plants, shade loving plants for a shady location, sun loving plants for a bright sunny location. Plant your container and water well, then grow in a sheltered position for a couple of weeks to allow the plants to get established.

After a month feed the container weekly during the summer with a high potash liquid feed such as tomorite. Do not allow to dry out. Dead head plants weekly for continual flowering.
