My friend has just given me 14 sheets of clear corrugated palstic he got from ajob he was doing. It looks in quite good nick. I was thinking cloches - any other ideas?
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

Want to sell any? Man I bought 2 sheets from B&Q (well a shelter was really important) and they cost me the best part of £20.

You could make coldframe type things which also collect water for you into a can or something. The roof of the shelter I built is going to be a coldframe top when we get a proper shed.

I have two sheets of that clear stuff from B & Q and it cost me £5.00 a sheet. I use them as cloches by bending them over and putting wire around them. The only trouble I have is that in strong winds they blow away. My OH plans to drill some holes in the ends and put stakes in them so that I can bend them over and fix them into the ground - however he hasnt done it yet so cant tell you if it will work.

Thanks - I was trying to think of incorporating some water-collecting aspect to any structure I build. I'll put up pics of any progress I make.
At the moment I seem to be building more than I'm planting. Still it gives vent to all my rough carpentry skills (?)

Cloche lids, wooden sides to cloches. Could you do a mini greenhouse type thing?

yes I was thinking of that. I'll have to get a bit more scrap wood off the same friend (always get to know a carpenter).
