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

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!

 And here we ar Two years in!

 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!

Cheers iGrow!

 Terrestrial species are found growing in the ground (the way we expect most plants to grow). They may be found growing in bright sun along sandy beaches to the shady understory of a forest among the leaf litter and debris.Saxicolous species are found growing on rocks. They may grow on hard rocky outcrops where their roots may penetrate cracks and fissures to locate moisture or organic nutrients or sometimes they are found growing tenuously on sheer cliff faces. Epiphytic species are found growing on other plants, usually trees, shrubs or cactus but somtimes they can be found on telephone poles or even on the telephone lines themselves. This capability to take their nutrition and moisture from the atmosphere has earned these bromeliads the name “Air Plants”.


Seem's a little more research as to the "Species" I picked up would have paid dividends!

All is not lost! I have a cunning plan!

But many thanks for your reply!
