sorry for not getting back sooner, but don't get on here that often these day's, work n all that! 

But it was nothing ingenious! 

The beds themselves were three stackable packing collars laid end to end, and I secured them together using 2 lengths of 3" x 2" down both sides.

 Then drill 22mm holes 2 inch deep at set intervals along both these lengths of batten, inserted six inch lengths of bar in these pre-drilled holes, then pushed 2 metre lengths of 22 mm hep 2 o water piping onto the bar! Easy!

Nice one Pam! 

Did give em a bash last year

but felt no more beneficial than the bottomless flower bucket technique "Lilylouise" as shown, will revert back to that this year! Will give the cucumbers a go in em this Year though! See how we go!

Got mine Jan 2012, and I did a serious planning out as to the layout, before I got stuck in!  What I wanted regards structures, sheds, greenhouse, polytunnel etc, then set too with a strimmer n brushcutter! cleared the working area first, so afore mentioned  buildings could be erected, conciously knoking there was going to be a lot of hard work, I set up 3 temp beds in the growing area n sowed just a few stuff in way of return so as not to get disheartened

 The results from them 3 little beds really speared us on!

 As others have said, a bit at a time, there will be blood, sweat n tears! But It's been "Bloody Good Fun" and the rewards we reap now are second to none! So "Go Break a Leg" All the very best to you with it Zoomer!
