Container Gardening on a Budget

Have you ever wondered how you can avoid the cost of expensive plastic or china pots for your patio?

If you are planning to grow vegetables on a patio and are not too concerned with the appearance of the pots a great cheap option is florists buckets.

The buckets below are available at Morrisons and come in 3 sizes:

I have used my supply of buckets for:
Tomatoes (try cutting the plastic base out if using a ring culture system)
Spring onions
Peas (for pods and pea shoots)
French beans
Rainbow Chard
Mint and other herbs
