In the garden: a neat idea



I’ve had these three pots of succulents in the wire tray for quite a while now. They’re right outside the kitchen door, where they get a good baking. A couple of weeks ago I was just thinking what a pity it was that I didn’t always have a few spare bricks lying around as I used to, to stand the tray on. Then I remembered that there were plenty of terracotta pots not in current use and hey presto! A big improvement and one of the plants has just started flowering. (The big shadow is from the hose reel.)

Eat your hearts out, purveyors of expensive, vintage shabby chic. That basket, containing three clay pots and some very manky herbs, cost me about a pound from the clearance trolley at the garden centre.
