Lidl Tomato Planter
« on: March 31, 2019, 13:47:08 »
I've just bought two of these:
Easy assembly and seems sturdy. 20 litre compost capacity. 8 litre water reservoir. Larger and much cheaper at 14.99 than others available online!

Yes, it's 1.8m tall including the pot. The idea is to add the rings as the plant grows, but I wanted to see just how tall it is assembled. I shall grow a Sungold in one on the patio and one of my paste varieties in the greenhouse in the other one.

Thank you for the picture and description  They do look interesting.  8 litres is a very useful water reservoir too for a long weekend  :wave:

Also at my local branch, some decent looking young fruit trees at reasonable prices.
Kordia cherry on colt rootstock looked a decent offer. Less good - Jonagold Idared and other apple varieties on M9. Not varieties I would choose, although Jonagold is popular with some people. Various plums on rootstock I didn't recognize.

I have no need for more trees but could not resist a fifteen minute "browse". Worth a look if you are going by.
Not mad, just out to mulch!
