    The bamboo, the heuchera and the grass I already had in the back garden, I snaffled the old water tank from the flat above my shop, and had the black paint left overfrom when I painted the fences. I did have to buy 180 litres of compost today though, which cost me less than a tenner, so nearly free!

      Cutting last year's branches off my curly willow (laughingly known as) "arch". The cuttings get used as Christmas trees every year, although I've got a good bushy shoot off the holly tree this year that I will be using. Don't believe in spending good money on a bought tree and won't have a plastic one as then the magic won't work.
