The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
I’ve been thinking about getting some height into my strawberry bed.
I’m thinking that a home made version of this might work well. Not sure how we can modify and adapt it.
Do you have any clever ways of expanding your garden space and giving your plants more room?
In Australia we have a waste disposal problem when it comes to old worn out car tyres. So if you go to a tyre shop and ask for a couple of used tires they will happily hand them over for free. So I got a large truck tyre and cut one wall off. did the same with a small truck and a car and a mini . Four tyres with the wall cut of one side. Fill the first with soil and place the next on top and continue to the top. Hanging gardens of Babylon. Be careful to have well draining soil but water well and the tyres will hold a large reservoir at each level.

That sounds brilliant! And it probably looks good too!
Funny, I was just tweaking my plan for this year and noticing how many things I’m growing on stakes, trellises and tepees. Up is the way to go!

Yes, upwards is good. Having liberated my holly from the hawthorn bush at the back of the garden that is now growing in the bamboo stakes I put up last year for the runner beans. As for good, I’m going to try out climbing tomato plants instead of the bush variety, since the latter take up so much space 🙂

Oh that’s a good idea. I hadn’t thought of that.
A vertical trellis to growing climbing vegetables or better still, an arched trellis that you can plant over and under.
