    was that the pottery kind ?

    yes - also used it on decking as the top is always in shade and tends to go green and slimy over winter - just whopped bleach on and scrubbed with brush - works on paving slabs as well

    maybe thats why it has lived soo long:whistling:

    My hubby just blasts them with the pressure washer, does hte trick. :thumbsup:

    Hope this helps.

    scrub with bleach

    Rub yogurt all over the pot and put it in a bin bag for a week :whistling:

    What's wrong with green algae - might be the very ones that Richard Branson says will be the ultimate biofuel!! Could be on a gold-mine there.
    Anyway,I think it gives a natural look to pots.
