    Honeysuckle struggling,not certain why?

    Honeysuckles like their roots cool and damp and shady. A pot doesn’t sound good.

    Could I grow a bamboo screen in this size container?

    One thing about the container and its strength, be very careful that the type of bamboo you get does not blow the contained area out and you or your neighbour have to start afresh with the screen.

    How many basil plants for a planter (L 60cm, W 18cm, H 18cm) ?

    @CanadianLori We are all very utilitarian over here :) I might try and see if I can get some to seed, if I manage enough plants.

    Dwarf magnolia in a container?

    Thank you. We have replanted in a smaller pot and will be more cautious when watering to see if it recovers. Finger crossed!

    Evergreen plants for stone vases.

    I've still got Blushing Bride in a pot on the patio @Victoria, and while it can develop little white flowers it doesn't readily do so. They're unobtrusive in any case.
