Boat as a planter?

Yes, Whittlesey, a fenland town just up the road from us, has several boats used as planters

I'll see if I can find some pics

I've never heard of it and found nothing on a search which I'm sure you'd already done.

Have you got a photo?

The variegated white honesty makes a ggod show.

re wishbone's suggestion of strategic pruning. Raising the conopy, ie removing some lower branches, makes a lot of difference to what you can grow.

Has anyone mentioned astrantias?

Just one post of dreadful advice Philippa, maybe just trying for a wind up?

What do you carry you hand tools around in?

Posted: 13/06/2015 at 09:53

They start in the wheel barrow then get scattered around the garden

OH has made me hooks in the shed, so if there are gaps at clearing up time I go and look for the missing items

So far I've not lost much

a pair of secateurs, under and pile of shreddings, went through the shredder.

a pruning saw, hung in a tree for2 years, too rusty to renovate.

another pair of secateurs, in the compost heap, was renovated.

I'm trying very hard to feel sympathetic and I can see that with the vast collection of insecticides on the GC shelves, all suggesting that you can't do without them, you might feel you need some.

You don't need them. They destroy the balance of life in your garden and reduce the likelihood of seeing all those bees, butterflies and ladybirds that we so love.

I hope your plants recover
