Unhappy gardener

My baskets and pots have not done at all well this year. My sone says we may have gotten hold of a poor batch of compost. Has anyone else had this problem?



Hi Sadie, are you sure its not just the weather, I think all our pots and baskets have been slow this year..Dee..

I have been very disappointed in my wall trough, it's looking a complete mess, my Impatiens too are hopeless this year and only my largest pot is looking good. So it's not just you, not the compost, just NO SUMMER!

My hanging baskets haven't done very well either this year although my wall baskets are doing really well although I have to admit I used growbag compost in the wall baskets and just normal compost and water crystals in my hanging baskets. I suppose you win some and you lose
