Home made shelves with bricks.


Home made shelves with bricks.

I have replaced the concrete blocks with red house bricks. Makes it a bit easier on the eye. Majority of the plants here are my wifes succulants.

I love this idea - the pots look great all grouped together.

I will have to think what I can put there in there place during the winter, as they will pretty much all move to the greenhouse then.

Terracotta do look nicer and are ideal for succulants. But they can be pricey. I do prefer them.

Janey, you cant see it on these pics but I have some cheap slatted shelves to the right of these with auriculas on. In fact I have loads now as I have just repotted some, and one is flowering, I shall take a pic.

I've been looking at ladder allotmemnts ever since I found their website: they seem the ideal way (or at least the best so far) to make multi-level displays.

Tthree sides of my garden are wire mesh fencing, so I only have one side I could use the taller ones on - they only do the three-tier as self-supporting; four- and five-tier have to lean on something.

But your photot has given me more incentive to work out measurements!

I mostly use plastic pots simply because of the weight: I don't have much back/shoulder/arm strength, and pots the size I'd need would be hard work even when empty! but of course insulation becomes a real problem with plastic; I'm still trying to work that one out. All I've come up with so far is to use one pot inside another, with a layer of bubble-wrap between.
