My happy plants….


After being in containers for years my plants are enjoying having their feet in soil and space! I need to move a couple of them around to different spots but have only lost 2, and they weren’t doing well when I moved them. My only problem is my “lawn”. There’s a lack of drainage so it puddles and possibly a wood louse infection. Neighbours have had that. Poor turf…..nIm having it looked at.

More has grown since I took these few photos so more to follow!

Your flowers are looking very colourful and vibrant. I'm sorry your lawn area is struggling, Pottygardener. I'm not au fait with grass care, but I'm sure whoever comes to assess will help.
Hopefully you'll get on top of the problem soon. Woodlice infestation can't be pleasant, it's bad enough just lifting a rock up and finding a load of them scurrying around.
Hopefully you'll get this sorted.

Your planting has really come on Potty, they are all thanking you for releasing them and giving them the freedom to spread their wings and flourish ..Shame about the lawn but last year was bad, lack of water and extreme heat, the turf didn't really get a very good start, hopefully you'll soon have it sorted....Hoping your leg has healed well for you...
