Blue Peter Moment! Reusing bottles

Posted: 14/04/2013 at 10:01

Ta Blakest,........my, aren't you neat RD?

I do the plastic bottle with hole in lid too and place it in a yogurt pot buried in the plant pot(it stops the hole getting bunged up with soil) Very efficient watering system , I say....and FREE!

I use plastic bottles filled with rain water(I'm on meter)and lay them around courgette plants.They warm the soil by trapping the heat of the sun(round orange ball, just reminding me)and release it at night.

I get the flower buckets(5 for 99p) from Morrisons too and use them  as pots etc. and drip water to water the GH.

We love Monty!

There you go again Verdun......behave, RD is a breath of fresh air, soooo keen and enthusiastic.

had your final frost yet - taking a gamble?

i agree with you Woodgreen wonderboy, I'm in the SE too and the late frost got quite a lot of plants, All the young rose shoots were singed, two of the pontitilla are looking very sad too.The shoots of the tree peony,bleeding heart, euphorbia etc.have been affected too. So please be patient a little longer as the nights are still cold. It is heart breaking when you see robust, healthy plants are affected.

Kiwi tea?

Hi Artjack, I have been reliably informed that there is small firm in Cornwall that grows tea and even exports it! So have a go, it will be lovely to have tea from your own bush
