Raise out­door pots

Gardening Australia - - YOUR PLANNER -

Heavy rains and con­stant wa­ter­ing over sum­mer and au­tumn can cause the drainage holes in pots to block up, es­pe­cially if they are sit­ting flat on pavers or con­crete. Block­ages like this can lead to wa­ter­log­ging and is­sues with rot dur­ing the cooler months. The best way to avoid this is to raise the pots onto pot feet, bricks or a few tiles. This will al­low ex­cess wa­ter to drain away freely.
