Using surpluses and waste
Mulching examples - there's always a lot of rhubarb so the leaves make a good ground cover as well as Jerusalem artichoke stems and grass cuttings from front garden.
Revamping an old overgrown herb bed
The herb bed was overgrown and weedy so after dismantling it, I used the bricks to make a double herb spiral, which I planted in April 2013.
The other bits and pieces of broken concrete (ex-foundations)
I used to make a border round the plum tree for easier mulching
and also to create a meditteranean bed behind the herb spiral.
Pleasant surprise - self seeded brassicas
I didn't want to waste them so I replanted them in a row near garlic.
