Thanks everyone! I sometimes spend more time working on recycling projects than on actually growing anything!

Make do and mend coldframes...ideas?

Posted: 18/04/2012 at 16:45

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for creative ideas on how to make coldframes with the minimum of fuss. I have a selection of glass panes on my allotment but I don't want to spend loads of money on wood. I seem to remember someone on telly painting cardboard boxes with gloss paint and then putting glass over the top. Any ideas gratefully accepted!

Bright Blessings!

Any advice on hand-push lawnmowers?

Hi Cetti.

Like yourself I yearned for the clicking and romance of a hand-push lawnmower and bought a Bosch push along from B&Q for my smallish lawn in West Yorkshire. I think that it was about £50 pounds but has been a great investment. Its very light and I can cut the grass in half the time. My Flymo used to blow grass into the borders and all over the patio even though it was meant to collect it all. It also saves time getting  the power lead, extension cable, circuit breaker out from under the detritus in the garage. I actually look forward to cutting the grass these days and can easily manage 2 or 3 cuts a week as a result!  I'm converted!! For second hand ones look on e-bay, your local Freecycle group, car boot sales etc, but like I say I'm really happy with the one from B&Q. Hope it helps.
