Hi, I've been to garden centre buying plants, I got a spider plant to place inside the table for the tortoise to hide under, would I best to re-pot it into topsoil (keeping it in a pot) or just plant it straight into the soil in table? It's also producing babies!

I bought pansys & violas too, I just wanted to double check that I need to re-plant them into topsoil & remove as much of the old soil & dead-head all flowers?

We don't have our tortoise just yet, but wanted to get things in place for when we do :)

Thanks emasen x

Hi emasen,

Any plants that are bought from garden centres need to have new growth before been fed, I normally replant them and leave them outside and then just feed the new flowers that come. :)  the grass plants that are in my table are just planted into the soil, the soil in my table is quite deep, and the plants have lasted ok doing it this way. :)
