Wooden planters, diy or worth the cost

Posted: 31/03/2015 at 19:31

Looks great. I really like that planter with the nasturtiums and clematis. I'm going to get started at them next week. I'm going to pick up some fence posts in the local hardware store. 

 

Im hoping to put in clematis and a variety of nastursium and in the other some buddleia and majoram. Should be great for the bees. 

 

Thanks do for the advice guys.

That's a lovely plant. I'd love to have a few types climbing on trellis along my side fence but they few clematis I've planted in the ground have died off. I reckon it's slugs as they tend to like the Northern Irish damp climate a fair bit. Is now a good time to buy summer flowering clematis? What size pot would be best?

It shouldn't take too much effort ed. Looks like a few screws should do it and a bit of wood glue. Will prob need to cut up the sections carefully though. Might not need massive tech for this one I reckon.

Would clematis do well in a planter?

Thanks tetley, if I got a few years out of them I'd consider that alright. So I line the sides, what about the base then, lined but with holes?

Yes, I've been wetting mine, but it feels wrong. Surely I should only water if new growth is appearing? I'm afraid I'll rot them all. Do you have yours in sun? 

 

Does anyany one have any idea when they should start putting out new growth. Mine all llandaff and Arabian night.

I have my eye on some large wooden planters in a local store. They seem quite expensive and was wondering if anyone else makes their own or has an alternative. I read recently that wooden containers soak up a lot of moisture. Any advice?
