How do i make my plant pot heavier?

Asked 8 months 1 week ago by [email protected]

I want a way to prevent them from tipping over in strong winds, then all the composts falls out :( Would adding stones be okay, and if so, where would you you put them, at the bottom of compost or at the top of the compost?

Post should have drainage in the base of them, it helps prevent the roots becoming water logged and rotting. Try using heavy stones, broken pots etc in the base to add weight..... also... Use a John Innes based compost as they contain loam which is far heavier than compost.
