Any ideas how I can stop my pot plants getting too wet?
Around my garden, I have many plants in large heavy pots whose roots don't appreciate the high amount of rain that we are getting week after week. Although they are in a "well drained" soil mix, they are still staying too damp for too long.
I'm trying to find something (rigid?) to shape into covers that could be placed around the bases of plants (to drain rain away over the side edges of a pot?) to keep the worst of the rain out of their soil. Then I could remove the covers when dry weather returns.
