Free greenhouse. Just save 1400 plastic bottles.
Fancy growing your own tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries etc etc but don’t have (or can’t afford) a greenhouse? That’s not a problem in this age of recycling and whatnot.
All you need is approximately 1400 plastic bottles, a lot of time and a bit of help and hey presto, you’ve got yourself a free greenhouse. The one in the picture has been constructed at Byker Farm in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in amongst citywide hysteria at the return of Alan Shearer, the great saviour.
You might not be able to get your hands on 1400 bottles overnight, but the idea is a great one for schools, colleges and community projects to get their teeth into. Our finders fee for this story is one punnet of juicy strawberries – email them to the usual address.
