Hi folks, i have not been active for a while just have had a lot on the last while. anyway i have planted some stuff and after watering the soil has sunk 2.5 inches. i try not to compact the soil too much when planting i would gently push down on the soil. i know that this will always happen and that all it takes is just some topping up but i am interested in hearing any suggestions which works for you to either minimise or completely prevent this. i used to compact gently with my hand then tap the pots but i found sometimes this was too much.
