Posts Tagged ‘colander’
|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!
