maybe one of you gardening specialists can help me with this one...
i have bought three rather large containers to plant some trees and i need to put in some materials for drainage.
as i am a novice, please excuse this obvious silly question.
but what can you use? pebbles will make the containers far too heavy. polystyrene, not sure. broken pots again heavy.
i know there are some sort of pellets you can use, but i can't find them in the normal (homebase/b&q's) shops.
I use polystyrene - about the only use for it unfortunately ... I know you resourceful SE1'ers will now suggest a Gizillion uses for polystyrene! Schnake, if you want good advice - the Garden Centre at the North end of Rotherhithe Tunnel is a great place, the 'boss' is very helpful and will knock down the bill for cash.
No connection, just a happy customer who has used them regularly.
A few years ago I was in a clients dining room admiring the crop of apples on trees in the garden, "Ah yes", said the client, "We gave those to my parents for their Wedding Anniversary a while back - if you're impressed by those, you should see my fathers Plums".
