Cheap, cheerful and eco-friendly

One of the joys of visiting new places is that you get the chance to see other people’s gardens.

Yes, I’m that nosy woman who looks over hedges and through gateways exclaiming, ‘Oh, look at that!’

I want a veg patch like this ...
... and I must have a purple and silver flower bed


Perhaps, when I am Rich, passers-by will want to peep into my lovely garden. If so, they’ll be very welcome.

But I wouldn’t need much money to copy this idea that I found during our holiday in Scotland. A greenhouse made from plastic bottles. Simply brilliant!

It was in a garden attached to a primary school. I do hope it inspires all the children there to become passionate and knowledgeable gardeners.

Have you seen any good gardening ideas lately?

I'm always looking over fences and through gateways.

Glad I'm not the only one!

It’s a brilliant idea for making a greenhouse.
Teachers can do that more easily than non-teachers: they can get the kids to bring bottles to school. Where would we keep them? we’d have to be very rich, with enough space to store them all prior to using them.

Yes, there is that catch, Friko, but I don't think it would take me long to collect them all for free from the litter along our roadsides.

Thanks for popping in, Debs. I've only got a small front garden and what the estate agent described as a courtyard garden, in other words a square of concrete, at the back where I grow as much as I can in containers. But one day ...!
