Q.Improve Drainage On Already Planted Annuals
I have six large annual containers already planted. There are plenty of drainage holes, but the soil is staying wet. I’m realizing that because the containers are plastic, they’re not drying out, and I should have used a potting medium instead of soil. Is there anything I can do to improve drainage, short of removing everything and replanting with potting medium? I’d rather not do that – it would take a lot of time.

Unfortunately, that is what will save your plants. Top soil is not suited for containers.
