Hi There,

I have one of these, but it is certainly planted in the wrong spot....It's in the corner of my garden by the shed where there isn't a lot of sun!! I put it there a about 2 months ago

I think it would be a good idea to move some of my plants around and get this to the back of a sunny border!..

My soil is quite clay though! Shall I dig in some sharp sand and compost? thanks!! 


  • Yes, always a good idea with clay soils. However, incorporating some fibrous matter, like the rough stuff from the back of the compost heap, wouldn't do any harm, either. It helps to break up the clay particles and assists with drainage and, believe it or not, moisture retention in the summer when clay soils tend to bake hard.
