Hi GWRS and Aster, I've only just seen your posts. The pallet planter hasn't been planted up yet My partner lined it with thick polythene both sides befores he filled it and it's got loads of drainage.
The plan is to plant it with some night scented stock, phlox, maybe aubreita if it worked. he plants I'm thinking of might be able to cope with drier condtions.
I hadn't considered adding any of those crystals,I don't know what you mean about wicks?
I have a few small pots of the stock so will have a go and start to plant it up and will let you know how I get on
