A handy recycled raised garden bed! I intended to paint ours but haven't had the time!


Material

  • 4 Old tyres (off the rims)
  • 2 bags Premium potting mix
  • 5 Plants or seeds
  • 3 Old newspapers

Method

  1. Arrange your tyres so three are on the ground in a triangle with one over the centre, lay your newspaper down over the ground inside the tyres.
  2. Fill with potting mix and water down well
  3. Plant your plants in each space, this looks great with either flowers or vegetables.

Notes

This is actually a handy garden, the more tyres you have the higher you can make it too!
