I'm at it too! Doing a little experiment with Cravendale milk cartons; the 4 pint square based plastic ones. Have lined four of them up and made different sized holes in the lids of each. Have cut the bases back to create lids, plonked them in the greenhouse bed and filled each with water. I'm seeing which one drains best - ideally the one who had drains over a couple of days to help with watering in the summer. Has anyone tried those tomato planter thingermines? Round things with a sort of built in trough around the edge. Our local garden centre has selling three for ??12. 99. Wondered if anyone thinks they make a big difference to tomato yields and if this is a good price?
