This is exciting news because we’ve a) bought a greenhouse now – one of those slightly wobbly click together w/plastic cover things and b) we’ve decided what we’re going to do with the flower border around the main grassy area…
Think, combination of:
Basically, we want a 2-tyre high border around the outside, with flowers / herbs / dwarf tree(?) planted within.
- Excellent child-proof barrier that small children can bounce off with minimal risk of injury
- Allows us to grow a mix of acid and alkaline soil loving plants in the same general area
- Easier to control growth of the plants we do go for (and easier to control the weeds!)
We’ve also seen a cool idea in a kids gardening book where a tyre planted with thyme has been used as a nice-smelling seat.
Now just to find 20-odd old tyres…
