Drainage NEW
by: Bill (New Zealand)

Hi There.
I have had that. I found that the soil was too wet. Since then I put broken clay pots or pipes in the bottom of the container for drainage and raise the container up so that it is not sitting in water. I reckon it is better to have very good drainage and water more often but I test the soil with my finger to make sure I am not over watering. Hope that helps. Cheers
Bill
