    It's a great idea Alan,I remember a writer John Yeoman writing about using old milk jugs with the top cut off and tied or wired to a post, to grow salad plants and strawberries etc.

    Anything is possible with a little imagination isn't it? I am fortunate that I have a reasonable sized garden,but plants like marrows and courgettes I grow on the patio in buckets ( very successfully too),and I grow an outdoor tomato ( Marmande) in bottomless 12" pots set into a narrow border against a sunny fence.They come in nicely after the greenhouse tomatoes.I found the advice on that website good as regards growing chillies too.Improved my crops.
