We were so lucky to get an allotment last year in summer and because it was too late in the year and wildly overgrown, we only started to work it this year. We got some seeds on sale from a local garden centre in autumn to get ready for planting this year and when the lockdown restrictions came, I knew that gardening would keep me busy. But one thing that I didn't have enough of and could no longer get were planters. Internet is full of inspiration and you are just a click away from the next idea for your projects. So here are my solutions as inspired by other keen gardeners and recyclers.
