Wet day job.


I am using this time tidying my Greenhouse and Hut.
Have found that a damaged supermarket discarded bread delivery tray is very good for collecting all the packs of nutrients and bottles together. Placed on the hut shelf easy to find an item.

An empty litre size plastic Lemonade bottle with the top cut off is useful for storing string tidily.

Compost bags folded in quarters and tied with string take up less space.

Plastic mini-Polytunnel bags not in use during the summer can be tied together, take up less space.

Any more ideas ?

I'm not sure whether you'll see my comment, but this is just to tell you these are good ideas and I'm adding the blog to GoYpedia Storage Ideas.

I cut milk bottles in half and use the part with the handle, one is tied to my g`house frame Diane with its ball of string and I have two half bottles in the compost, yes the bread baskets are very handy, my hedge trimming sheets are rolled up in a huge compost bag, I save my seedheads and seed packets in the plastic detergent boxes always pop one of those silica bags in them to keep them dry, these are also handy for my ties and labels and stack nicely, haven`t even thought about Tidying the sheds yet this year, I think the weather has put me off...

Just logged on to see if any replies to my plea. A bit too soon really.
I have a 30 year old frame from a mini-greenhouse, -when they were first marketed. It has fallen apart for years, in my shed. I am glueing the struts into the holes. Have to wait for each section to dry, as it still falls apart !
I bought a bargain pack of Floor Cleaning Wipes at the GC £1 for 18. These have proved very useful cleaning all the struts.
The frame is very useful for storing Maincrop Onions which have been ripened off.
