    Wizer our local council has an offer on at the moment for compost bins at 5 each delivered to your door RRP is 49. They are much better than the homemade ones we had before. Why don't you see if your local council has the same offer on?

    WiZeR you can also get water butts from some water companies, set up some guttering on your shed and drain it in - you will be surprised how soon it fills up even if it seems like there has not been much rain.

    A nice way to save water.

    We collect the rain water in a butt from the guttering on the greenhouse and use that to water everything in the greenhouse. On the allotments we have a water butt on both plots and when there hasn't been any rain we fill the butts up using a hose pipe and then we can use that water to fill up the watering cans. You don't have as far to carry the watering cans that way.
