What's wrong with this pot?
I fell in love with this beautiful, but heavy, 10" high pot about 10 years ago, since when I have tried to grow all manner of plants in it and every one does poorly! Why? Am I missing something? Is the shape of the pot bad for plants? It's only painted on the outside and has a drainage hole in the bottom and no amount of drainage crocks plus nice fresh compost can make any plant do well. I have this morning dug out a very sick ivy-leaved pelargonium - the latest fatality from this beast. I know I could use it as a cover for another pot, but I'm bemused by the death-wish it seems to have on all plants attempting to grow inside it. Any ideas?
