Marking out the grids

Marking out the grids

Had great fun trying to find something that wouldnt rot - string or bamboo canes can move - Mel recommends venetian blind stripes (who can get them?) but settled on electric tubing from B & Q (plastic so should last a few years and I could cut them with sissors!)

I keep coming back to your site for tips, was trying to remember what the strips/dividers were made of, have used string but might see what I have in the shed thats plastic now! now noticed how nicely painted all your garden is, I wonder if I am too late to do this now. Did you use a speciail garden paint ?

I used cuprinol which is especially designed for wood for outside -its really good only have to do it once and then just top-up every 2-3 years. Its got wax in it which protects the wood, and great colours.
