Pallet Vegetable Planter

Using old pallets, I laid 3 on the ground and then sawed 4 more in half to make the sides. Once I had attached the sides, I lined it with recycled plastic feed bags and weed cover membrane. I then filled it with well rotted manure from our muck heap ready for planting. 🙂

In the UK, its an illegal offence to disturb a nesting site, so, from March through to the end of July, make sure you hold off on trimming back your garden foliage.
