    Heavy clay drainage help

    Mattocks are brilliant. See if you can find an old one though. I think the newer ones are inferior in their design, if not their quality.

    Same goes for using a Stanley knife as well :blue thumb:.Once again, it's a matter of bending. I find it's easier and an inch or two less bending when using the knife. It's amazing how much that extra couple of inches less bending is better for a bad back. I then leave all the planting to Mrs Shiney. :wub2:

    my broom plant is dying. Why?

    I've got a large Broom in a planter which has been there for years. It's been potted on a couple of times. They're tough plants but don't like too much water. How often have you been watering it?

    Polygala Myrtifolia advice and help please

    Thank you for the advice - I think it's definitely a pruning job - apparently they like acidic soil too so may Investigate that to see if helps new growth.
