Another in my occasional series of 'how to' guides to looking after interior plants.
There are a number of ways to remove stubbornly rooted plants from an old container.
A new method - as trialled by one of my staff today - is to drop it out of the side door of a Transit van, then simply sweep the compost and plants up where they land.
Not the neatest way, but you must admit it possesses a certain panache.
The nameless staff member was obviously not that thrilled by the results of her experiment, as she was trying to sweep up the evidence when I arrived on the scene.
Luckily, the contents were definitely due for disposal, having come from a new maintenance contract where we have just replaced a lot of the planting.
Otherwise I wouldn't have been quite so amused!
