    I'd say they are giant propagators on legs

      Thought they looked like a good way to grow some strawberries off the ground.

      • Just a quick update on the multi seed packet from Aldi for 99p I mentioned - I chitted some Roma tomato seeds from it the other day and got nearly 100% germination - also the internal plastic packing of the seeds was very good, so unopened ones will store well I think.

          They are raised planters.

          A bit like these:

          but the quality is not as good. Still, they look like fairly sturdy planters and base and lid for the same price I paid for just the bases of my Elho ones!

          • They have some potato towers too (not sure I got pictures of those) which I thought looked like they would be good for strawberries (or herbs, loose-leaf lettuce etc)

            • See - propagators on legs! They do look good, but I have raised beds in bags for life instead, slowly swapping them for pallet collars in the back garden. No such luxuries on the allotments

                How much were the Lidl ones out of interest. I sent the OH in the way to work and they said there was 30% off, but I think it was only the bases available which might be why. But then I only wanted the base! Would be handy to check we've not overpaid though

                It's okay I've just googled it and found the info in cache, as they're no longer listed on the Lidl website:
                Parkside Raised Planter With Cover - 19.99
                Size: L79.5 x W39.4 x H88cm
                Capacity: 70L

                • That's right. I actually like my lids. I think they help give a head start to my sowings, and I'm hoping they will help me overwinter some greens this year (I wasn't organised enough last year to get anything in).

                  If you get a top and bottom for 13.99 (30% off), that would be an amazing deal! If my Dad would't kill me for buying more stuff before I move later this year, I might be heading back there myself right now

                    Nope, it was bottom only for 13.99, but as I said we only wanted the bottom, gonna try growing some strawberries.

                          • Fryers in Knutsford have most of their bulbs on sale for 1 / 1.50. They are part of the blue diamond group but it may not be a national offer so check with your local site before travelling.
