A lovely wildlife haven you have there, HyppyByker. My kind of garden!!
Thanx Gracie - really trying hard to make it so
@hyppybyker.. wehre did you get those plant supports form i woul dlove some of them for mine..
I followed Monty's instructions on GW last June - 6mm round steel rods from the steel merchants, they come in 6m lengths, then the other half cut them to length, bent them round various sized tubs and buckets, bent up the ends and hey presto!
I'm really pleased with how they've turned out - they're really easy to get in the ground, no faffing with twine and they look nice. Downside is they're rusty so messy esp when wet and I've got to sort out where to store them over winter. Worth it tho.
I've got quite a few rods left over so I'm getting him to make a corkscew support for some soneysuckle this weekend
Certainly helps to have a man who can
