I too have made use of tyres to grow veg/fruit in along with most other types of containers.  Have not noticed any problems

Ornithogalum longibracteatum/caudatum

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 12:53 I started this particular thread, it shows on the RH side of the list of my posts.  I just bring it up and add a new message ( doesn't matter what you write), submit reply and it comes to the top of Latest Posts.

Otherwise I think you can just pop the thread title into the Search box and it should then appear and you can add a post as normal.

Sadly, that's about the limit of my techie knowledge as I'm still using a 3 year old laptop.
