From colanders to containers

I’m quite proud of my ingenuity on this one. Basically, I’m very mean when it comes to spending actual money on my garden. So rather than shell out £££ on some hanging baskets to plant my Tumbling Tom cherry tomato plants, I bought a couple of old colanders at a local church jumble sale. This one is suspended from a metal bracket via the handle from a bucket, and held in place with a wire coat hanger. It doesn’t exactly look elegant, but at least it’s nice and secure. The white bits you can see in the photo are a piece of old net curtain, which has been used to line the colander and prevent the compost from coming out through the holes. Today I could just see some tiny flower buds on my Tumbling Tom plants. I hope the fruit will be worth eating, because the seeds were very expensive – nearly £3.00 for the packet!
