Re: totems for climbers

Indeed, I agree with Neil, especially when it is used as a potting mix.
But in this case we have a few years experience now and it will stay
just fine for at least 2 to 3 years. Plastic is nice because there is no
risk that it deteriorates and so whatever happens it holds the plants.
