    I did once see a plot where someone had edged a bed in wine bottles. I really hope I couldn't manage that - 8.2 linear metres of edging per bed. Assume 10cm diameter of wine bottle - 82 bottles/bed. I've got 10 beds in the new half plus another 3 of the same size in the old bit (and 5 more of miscellaneous sizes). Assume they are all the same, and that's 18 beds = 180 bottles = 135 litres of wine... or three years if you drank a bottle every week)
    I think two sheds lined her path edges with wine bottles. Then the allotment bosses decided glass wasn't allowed so she had to remove them all if I remember correctly.


    I used weed suppressant and wood chip on some of my paths OMG!! Lesson learnt....took me forever to remove I now use card/lots of damp newspapers to line my paths and then wood chip on top. I don't use plastic cos I find it slippery if I don't have enough covering on them.
