Plants just need water

I was upset to read (News in brief, November 2019) that the contractors were blamed for the “disappointing” display this summer in the controversial tiered containers in Barnt Green. There is a saying: “no point planting without water”.

I pass the container near the Vic pub at least five times a week, and the soil was like dust, it was so dry. I did tell a member of the council at least a couple of times, then a third time when I heard the planting blamed.

The plants were at their best during October . . . but we have had rain!
