All tub and container grown plants need to be treated, in some respects, like bonsai, with an open, free draining compost mix, see here:
Add a good drainage layer of 1/4 inch gravel at the base, this and the free draining mixture will help protect plants from waterlogging.
Thank you.. Mick I will look it up. I really need some as this weather is going to stick around for some time and I have to have plants!
The most important thing to consider is your soil and the container the plants will be growing in. If at all possible, use a container with drainage holes. If that is not possible, layer larger rocks then smaller rocks on the bottom of the container before putting your soil mix and the plant in. If your plant is not a bog loving plant, use a soil that is light and fluffy - not claylike.
Yeah! you can choose vegetables, like tomatoes. Other plants like coleus, pothos can be grown well in damp weather.
You can also complement you damp weather by giving your plant a loose soil by mixing quit a extra amount of sand in your potting mix.
For all these you will require a good amount of light, just keep it in mind.
