I thought i'd pass on a little idea i tried a few years ago that works and looks a bit different,
How many times have you thought what shall i grow my cherry tomatoes in?

Well i bought an old alloy kitchen colender (hope ive spelt that right) it's one of those things you wash your veg in,
At one of those car boot sales,

they go for pennies "but" they are ideal for hanging just outside the kitchen we're they'll grow happy in one of these containers,

You dont need to drill any drainage holes and being made of alloy or plastic they'll last a life time, jusy put one of those hanging basket frames up and a bit of chain from one handle to the next, (i put old news paper in the bottom of the colender to stop the water just pouring through) filled the rest with compost and the cherry tom's plant and left it to produce and produce and continue producing lovely cherry toms all summer,

(feed once a week) and thats about job done,
what a talking point .
