    Default Plastic pots.

    I have noticed over the last few weeks how quickly my plants, mostly tomatoes, are drying out in the plastic pots I am using.
    I have started sitting the pot inside another pot of the same size.
    It has kept the inner pot cool and the soil is not drying out so fast.

    In other words, double pots. It does make a difference.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    That sounds like a good idea. It's pretty windy round me so things do dry out quickly. When my washing is drying a treat, my plants are drying out too!
