I only use one or two pieces of curved broken terracotta pot, placed over the drainage hole/s in the pot, like a little bridge, to keep the hole clear of compost so that it drains freely - that's how my granny's gardener showed me how to do it.  That way the pot drains free from surplus water, but loam-based compost doesn't get washed out of the holes. 

It's not really needed with more fibrous compost.

Your say, have a look at what you clicked on - yes that is one of David's photographs which he has also posted (under his name) on another forum - that's why it's already on the net!!! 

And David has posted many many pictures of his sweet peas growing on this and on other sites and he is well known amongst sweet pea growers and show goers.

 Doh!! honestly!!! Look before you leap or you'll end up looking a complete plonker
