Cor baby, that’s really free!

A few months ago my wife found this wire plant pot holder in the street to be chucked out. The pot that’s sitting in it was rescued from the garden of the then derelict house next door (which are now flats and inhabited thank the lord) and filled with some self-seeded nasturtiums transplanted from the garden with a little bit of creeping thyme which I got from the growing food in the city course at the walworth garden farm.

I very rarely throw any plant pots out unless they are beyond repair and if they’re plastic and unrepairable they go straight in the recycling bin. In the case of cracked terracotta pots I break them up and stick them in a bucket to use later as “crocks” to put in the bottom of pots as drainage. All the good pots get stacked up at the bottom of the garden (after a good wash out) and reused time and time again. Waste not want not and all that!
