Hello there, I'm a novice wannabe gardener, and I just started my first ever herb garden. I'm using a long rectangular planter that I got in Home Depot, attached to the railing of my outside deck. Recently it's been raining a lot in NYC, so the soil is wet. The planters do have drainage holes, but they also come with those saucers that attach to the bottom (which can be removed). Doesn't the saucer end up blocking those drainage holes and therefore preventing drainage? Should I remove them? When is it ok to use those "bottoms"? It seems like it would always prevent drainage...
Thanks for any help. This is my first post here, and I'm betting it won't be my last
