So this year when it came time to put together my flowerpots for the decks, I went all out and bought new ones. My previous ones were looking REALLLY rough after several seasons out in the elements. I bought those heavy LOOKING pots that are really made of the lightweight styrofoam-like material. The back deck ones came from Wal-Mart, the front from K-mart.
I loaded them up with soil, plunked in all of the flowers that I bought, strategically placed them and sat back to enjoy them. One. Tiny. Problem. THE STINKING THINGS HAVE NO DRAIN HOLES!!! NONE of them!!! Who decided this would be a good idea to sell such an item?! My poor plants are perpetually water-logged and the leaves are a sickly yellowy-green. As much rain as we've had lately, I can't keep up with tipping the pots to at least get the surface water off. To say I am aggravated is an understatment!
