Boatshed garden ideas

Posted on Thu 26 May 2016 in General

Quite a few of our visitors comment on our Boatshed garden, so I thought I would occasionally share some ideas that are really easy to do.

So, the little metal birds are cut with metal snippers from a piece of aluminium sheet that Jimmy had left behind when he moved. They were just tacked onto the wooden edges of the raised bed, and covered my pretty shoddy carpentry! And we tend to go through quite a few pairs of wellies between us - can't bear to put them in landfill, so I poke a few drainage holes in the bottom, fill with compost and plant up. Had tomatoes in on or two last year! Oh, and then there's the kayak pond - but that's not fair as not many people have one of those lying around. Ours had sprung a leak, so had to be fixed first......
