Due to water temperatures and discolouration we buy bottled water for drinking, washing salads and cooking in. Despite having recycling bins we've noticed the refuse collectors empty both bins into one track so we try to reuse as much waste as we can.
I asked my son to cut down the 15 litre bottles
I made a make shift wheel barrow to fill the base with rocks and a mix of sand and compost
Although by the time I'd finished potting up, the pots were in full sun, but at the moment only between 11am and 1pm.
I've been looking at the neighbours gardens to check out the type of plants they are growing and I've noticed quite a few have either dug channels to plant in or have built little sand walls around each plant. I'm not sure how this helps just yet, but there is obviously a reason for it, so I'll give it a go.
These are the plants currently growing around the neighbourhood, there is also an irrigation system in place.
