Newbish questions - please don't kill me!
Awesome forum -- I've spent the last two hours reading instead of working. However, searching hasn't helped we with two basics:
Preferred container types for hot, dry outdoors? Terra cotta? Plastic? Wood?
Preferred covering for drainage holes? Screen? Cloth? Some kind of mesh?
If there are existing links addressing, could you kindly point me to them? I read Al's basic principles article. Any others addressing basics? Thank you so much.
