>I don't use many band pots (the term for the kind of open-based pots 
>being discussed here), but when I do, I crumble some oak leaves coarsely 
to put in the bottom, since I don't have screen handy to cut up in 
little squares as done by growers who use band pots a lot. I don't think 
this creates a perched water table in the mix I use, which does not 
contain Perlite, 
A perched water table is unavoidable in containers. Gravity, and all that stuff. 
This is pretty good, though does employ the word “drainage”, which makes me grit my teeth. http://oregonstate.edu/dept/nursery-weeds/…
