Thanks so much to all of you for your advice.  It's a relief to know that others had seen the same programme as I had begun to think I had dreamt it!

 

I'll certainly follow up all suggestions from builder's merchants to GW 'How To' section to farmers' suppliers.  All sound very promising.

Hi

I'm new to the forum and am hoping that I haven't missed an existing thread on this subject.  I'll be really grateful for any useful tips.

A few years back on a Gardeners' World programme Monty demonstrated making metal plant supports by bending a rod using a dustbin former.  I wish I'd noted more of the details, not least what metal rod he was using.  I've been told at a local diy store that unless it was aluminium (and I'm sure it wasn't) heat would have been needed!

Does anyone recall this programme and maybe given the plant supports a go?  I'd love to hear how successful you were - and of course what material you used as well as any tips you could give.  I have many herbaceous bedswhich I love, but purchasing ready-made supports is expensive.

many thanks
