Whoops I should clarify - it was far more recent than Geoff Hamilton, I'm thinking in the last 2-5yrs. It was a paint which meant the box could hold water - so it was a water trough as opposed to a planter.
What I actually want to do is to make my own outer pots for my orchids to stand in that will cope with moisture. I have so many orchids and keep needing bigger and bigger pots, its hard to keep up!
