    Been trying to render some raised garden bed walls.
    I have changed nothing from start to finish but i have 2 walls that came out perfect, and two that just keep falling off.
    I can plaster (internally) and so have a good basis of skills but this is just too weird.
    When applying my scratch coat big areas will slump and drop off?
    I am rendering over brickwork.
    If this was plaster id stick some pva on first but everyone seems dead against that?
    Any clues?

    maybe the bricks are damp so have no suction.
