help baby frogs dying

I have a preformed pond surounded by slabs. This year my pond has been full of frogspawn and there are now hundreds of tiny frogs trying to leave the pond. I have layed a thick piece of towelling into the pond and run it into the lawn and flower border. The frogs are using this path to get out of tbe pond but many seem to wander onto the slabs and die in the sun. Is there anything more i can do to help the frogs or is it down to natural selection?

which bamboo?

I am thinking of plating 2 bamboos in my 65cm cube teak planters. They will be in part shade in front of our 7ft garden wall. So i am looking for a tall growing bushy bamboo. Any suggestions please.

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?
