Potted Shrubs Blowing Over
My potted shrubs blow over constantly during strong winds, even though they are placed right next to our garage. I used small stones for drainage when planting. The soil is also dry right now because it is still winter here in NH (although not technically) and I have not watered them. Can you please suggest something so they are no longer falling over?
When potting containers for windy locations we use a large rock or brick in the bottom to add weight. If it isn't convenient to repot, add a 2" layer of gravel to the top of the soil. Water the plant if the soil is dry, even if it is winter.
