ideas for large teak planters

Posted: 16/03/2015 at 23:25

Thanks for the replies. No I dont need to hide the wall so whatever I choose doesnt need to be as tall as the wall. An evergreen is a must and I must admit I hadnt thought of a camelia. Would they grow in a sheltered but not sunny area? With regard to the planters would I need to line them with plastic?

I have just bought 2 large teak planters to go at either side of my garden bench and now need some ideas for what to put in them. At the rear is a high wall and although it is north facing it is quite sheltered. I need something evergreen which will grow to about 10ft which is the height of the wall and bush out a bit to soften the wall. Any ideas please. I do have a clump forming bamboo in another part of the garden which I could try splitting but not sure if it would be suitable for containers?

Thanks. I am looking at real teak. I know it is expensive but hopefully would last me out!

I am thinking of buying 2 of the above to put either side of my teak bench. Can anyone recommend where to look and does anyone know how serviceable these will be long term? Also what would you plant in them to provide a bit of height?

Thanks

mildew on flowers

I dont know what I have done wrong this year but I have mildew on my scabious,erysimum and stocks which I grew from seed. My sweet williams had 

fungal leaf spot and 2 out of 5 of my black currant bushes are covered in powdery mildew.

Thanks for your replies. Just wondered if I could propogate them as a way of starting again. If so how do you take cuttings and how long before I have my new miniature bushes back?

Thanks everyone for those suggestions. The last one could be oregano as it does smell herby. Number three is not a foxglove but could be a penstamon as the leaves seem the same. Still not sure about number four. All I know is that I seem to have a lot of these!

Lincolnshire! I planted 2 packets of seeds, one was mixed wild flowers and the other mixed perenials. I lost the labels which told me which was which.

I bought 3 of these as little plants 3 years ago and planted them in pots. Year 2 they grew to about 2ft and were a delight to look at and also covered with butterflies. I pruned them as instructed and put them in a spare garden bed for the winter. In the spring I put 2 of them back in their pots and they have just started flowering but they are much bigger and a bit bare at the bottom. The one left in the garden has grown into a massive bush. When described as miniature bushes only hold true  when contained in a pot?
