Can I plant near a septic tank?
Hi, I wondered if one one could offer any advice please? We have a reasonably sized garden in the country with a small septic tank which is in the centre near the back, it's near some lovely trees (about 30feet away) and I wanted to plant some fruiting woodland type plants there like blackberry, dog rose etc as it gets a reasonable amount of sun. I'm just not sure if its safe to plant near the leach field if we are planning to eat the fruit- do chemicals ' filter out' through the soil before they get to plants roots? The plant closest to the tank would be around 10ft away. We' ve only been here 1year so I'm not sure what detergents etc the previous owners used. sorry for the ramble!
