PP, when I need wood I get my dad (lol) to look in the bins at B & Q as they chuck out all there off cuts, also in these parts people often leave paletes from lorrys lying around

Yes I agree with Heron. Freecycle is so useful.. I have just collected a sack full of pots from a Freecycler and I have given away heavy garden tools etc. that I can't use. Freecycle is a brilliant help to Gardeners.

Free cycle would be my suggestion too. Join your local one and post a request also dont forget to read what's on offer. Just make sure nothing you accept is contaminated.
