Tall planters

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 13:55

I want to put one or two tall planters to either side of my front door, where there is frosted glass.  They'll need to be a minimum of 60cm tall.  I've seen several on websites but I'm not sure which material is the best.  I don't want to go for the cheapest if it's not going to last more than one year.

Thank you. I've taken them out of the greenhouse as it might be a bit hot in there for them and put them in a sunny, sheltered position.  Fingers crossed!

I took some cuttings from a hardy fuchsia last autumn.  They have roots but no shoots have started.  Should I give up on them? I live in the southeast.

Thanks for your comments and advice.  The cuttings have rooted so I'll remove the leaves and see how it goes.

Need to practise my IT skills a bit more first but might be able to manage it.

I've had a closer look at the soil with the the 'egg cases' and they move.  They remind me of clusters of housefly eggs but smaller.  Also, there are lots of little flies around.  Could that be the problem?

My fuschia cuttings, which were doing really well in an unheated greenhouse, have been attacked by something!  The leaves that are left are discoloured and distorted but most have fallen off.  I did find a web, so suspected red spider mite.  However, there are what look like white fluffy egg cases on the top of the soil.  They are cylindrical and a few mm long.  Any idea what the problem(s) might be?
