Pond baskets in my borders?
I grow things like dahlias that I want to lift at then end of the season. Similarly, I want to lift spring bulbs when they're done and replace them with something else for the Summer. I had an idea - maybe I'll plant things in square pond baskets so that I can easily lift them out and swap in a pre-prepared pond-basket of something that's ready to go in. I watched a programme about Wisley - they do a similar thing in their alpine houses with clay pots set in a sand bed. They swap in different pots as the season progresses. Has anyone ever tried using pond-baskets in a border?
