Hanging Baskets for the Porch

Continuing on the planting theme for the new porch I'd love to create a few lush hanging baskets but with the wind and lack of sun in the afternoon my plant choices are going to be slightly limited.  I do like the idea of adding in a small evergreen to keep the structure during the winter months like in the third picture, and the succulents in the second pictured above.  More research is needed though to get the perfect potting mix and Fine Gardening has an excellent section on all types of soil mixes depending on your planting method.
