In our garden, in south india we had different ponds. There was a shortage of water for our garden during winters. We made big pots in the shallow ponds. But, i was worried about seeds germinating. It rained then the next year, so we used clay pots for planting them. We can see quite a few of the roots sprouting in the pots even now. The roots kept growing through the pots. How can i avoid this? They will never grow in pots. Thanks

I have a problem with the plants I buy from the grow light system growing wild on my patio. They seem to be seeding like crazy and the biggest problem is I dont see any evidence of pruning these plants. They have been established for years in my garden but I guess I dont see any signs of it in my backyard plants because I have an almost full moon or cloudy skies everyday from 7:30pm to 10pm and then the full moon is 3 days ago.

Hi Martin and Matt, I just bought my first house and it's not finished. Now I have a lot of soil exposed to the elements (not covered). The flooring is coming off of the house as it is exposed to the elements. The soil underneath the house is clay and the rest of the yard is sandy loam. How do I address the problem and protect the house?

You can add wood mulch to add a covering to your soil and help reduce any soil heave.

We have an apple tree that is growing great but are getting an odd amount of leaf fall and lots of small seeds. This is from a seed given to us by a friend so do not know where it came from. It is very bushy with lots of 4 to 6 inch leaves. Any advice on what this might be?

Hi - found this question here on the forum and after 3 months of searching i still don't know the answer. I currently have 3 plant pots growing with geraniums, foxglove and a cherry that have been growing for months now (with the exception of the foxglove) i planted all three in the same time (as a test) and the only thing i can say is that my plants have not died but i still have no roots that are coming out of the sides of the pots. We live in Australia and its definitely summer. I have an enclosed porch and live in a fairly large house. The problem is i can't work out if i should repot them into larger pots or not? if so, how do i tell? if not, how long before i should expect roots to appear? i can't beleive they just sit there doing nothing for months!! please help! i need to know what to do.

We have a house in New Orleans built in the 1900's. We have a lady friend living with us and she is a beekeeper. She has been bringing in all the old bricks and wood that are laying around. This lady friend has been taking the bricks and building a "pet" garden area at the back of our home. A well kept, fertile and full of soil that has way over time. She has been bringing in all these things for about a year now. As time has gone on, she has added more and more brick and wood. I have watched her do all this and there is no cleaning of these items and none of them are stained. Do you think that if we added these items to our garden we would be allowed to. I do not want to break any rules or ordinances here. My wife would be upset if i told her that we could not use these things here in our garden.

How do you know when to repot plants? I did repot mine and started to suspect i was damaging the roots. I have had one plant died on me. I just wanted to know the signs before i injure another plant.

Repot when they become to spindly or when they start to droop.

Hello. We just moved into a new home and have quite a number of plants in pots that are not growing. We bought some some topsoil and planted some seedlings and brought those pots inside and all seems well now. We have 10-12 plants that we dont know what kind of are in the pots. We have not watered the pots in a couple of weeks. Is there a way to identify what kind of plant they are from the pot itself? How do we know if these are weed seeds or from plants we have in our home? I have an aggressive herb in the pots but do not know what kind it is? We would love to get to know what the pot says or what could be causing this problem.
