  • Ask around on your Freecycle if anyone has an old pond liner lying around. Doesn't matter if it's damaged. If it looks too intact when you get it, put a garden fork through it a few times. Then dig out a good amount of soil - you need to go deep here, not less than 50cm and preferably 80cm, lay in the liner, and then cover it with the soil. It'll retail enough water to keep things above it pretty moist, but it'll have some drainage so it doesn't become stagnant and awful.

    Sadly I have no ground to dig up. I have a concrete garden with all my plants in containers, which is why I'm looking to create one in a container too.
