A new addition to the container garden. This is such a simple and attractive planter.

Like mother like son

We’ve been to visit my mum today – Saturday is tea at Mum’s. While we were there I went out back to put some hanging basket brackets up for her and what do I see?


These look familiar! By a strange coincidence both me and Mum have been cutting up old milk cartons in pretty much the exact same way and making further use of them. While mine are home to my nails and screws, Mum has been growing stuff in hers (or rather, the kids she childminds have). What a great idea! I’ll have to bear this in mind for my container allotment project.
