I use the polystyrene trays from the fish & chip shop to place between the plantpot and the planter, for when they stand in the greenhouse through the winter.Helps keep them warm.
Also old washing up bowls with holes drilled in, for planting shallow rooted salad crops ie lettuce, radish, etc as my veg patch is small and space at a premium.
Old tights legs are great for tying things up as theres lots of elasticity, and they don't cut into stems. Can be used complete for the hevy stuff or cut into 1inch strips for the delicate bits.
Of course bits of polystyrene packing in the bottom of pots instead of crocks as this cuts down on the weight.
