Rather depends on which plants you are growing GD.  


Strong rooters such as Lilly/Iris, etc will make their way out of the basket regardless.  The more genteel types you can, to an extent, keep them contained simply by using Hessian or thin weed membrane fabric.


All of them will need a certain amount of checking over and cutting back unless you have acres of water - in that case, you should be OK for a few years

The basic Cayenne are reliable - if you remove the seeds when you come to use them, they aren't too hot ( tho "hot" is always a matter of personal taste ).  They dry well and last for ages.

Mr. Farage has been an MEP for a number of years and has made quite a successful living from his position.  Just the expenses alone which can be claimed from what has become known as the EU Gravy Train makes it quite a good living.


I would have no objections ( well, I'd have fewer objections I suppose ), if he had ever had any intentions of trying to alter the EU for the betterment of all EU citizens from the inside.  How can he truthfully say the EU is such a bad thing when he takes advantage of it so blatantly ?  Either be an MEP and attempt to do something good or back off.  His hypocracy is really quite mind blowing.


I have to be honest and confess I am not even sure whether he is still UKIP leader/ part of UKIP or what - an advisor to the US now perhaps ??  Also wonder whether it really matters ?  His promises in the Brexit  "debate" are perhaps just as worthy as Mr. Trump's promises - just so much hot air .


For all those people who voted for Mr.T because he wasn't a politician ?  He became a Politician the minute he stepped into the White House for his meeting with Obama.

Just thought I'd slip this in before Nora is about 


I know at least some of you will be missing "Cheap Kitchens", "Vertical and/or Aquaponic gardens", Welsh/Scottish Dressers" etc.


I have Neighbours and a Heron going cheap - both can be collected asap by any interested parties.  Both fully guaranteed - Neighbours to be a PITA and Heron to be persistent.


Feel free to use this thread to advertise your own stuff -the only criteria is that it has to be cheap and fairly useless
