hello everyone, I found this site by accident and I think it is fab already!! I just joined this morning. I have got my tyres ready for planting, someone said I should line them in order my veg does not absorb anything bad from the tyres. Any thoughts on this? I also noticed the courgettes growing in one tyre, I was making all of mine double height, can I get away with single making more planters? I plan to grow courgette, aubergine, green beans, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, rhubarb and a friend gave me some asperagus roots to try out. I have never been so adventurous in the garden before and any and all thoughs and advice are very welcome. Thanks in advance.



Hi there Bodders. I'm a new member to this site too. It's great and very useful. Good luck with the veg. I suffer from Rabbits so I don't have the luxury of growing my own.

Hi Bodders and welcome to GoY, sounds like you are going to have lots of fun with your tires. Can I just check what you will have them standing on...
