It’s 19 x 19 x 19 cm, so you could have a row of different herbs, particularly as it’s probably best to grow them separately.
( Especially that hussy Mint – spreads herself into anybody’s bed!)
These little planters, made for us out of recycled cement bags by ladies in Dhaka, can be taken indoors – but remember they have holes for drainage.
It’s 29 x 29 x 29 cm, so you should be able to fit it into lots of different places, just squeeze it into any small, sunny spot.
I love the smell of growing tomatoes, and you could put one or two of these planters right outside your patio door or window.
The ladies in Dhaka also make these out of recycled cement bags, and we include some tomato growing instructions.
It comes with potato growing instructions, but grow whatever you like. ( How about carrots, or parsnips – Ooooh your such a rebel !)
It’s 45 deep x 29 x 29 cm, so again you can squeeze this Planter into quite confined spaces
Ladies in Cambodia make these Planters out of recycled fish feed bags, isn’t it amazing how many things can be recycled if you try !
One of those times was when I read Dr Donna Hughes’s article on trafficked girls and women in Cambodia. Well just you have a look and tell me what you think
Anyway, as we try to do with our biodegradable pots, Beth and her company are not simply just sitting down and reporting on the misery these young girls and young women endure, they are doing something about it !
As with the programme in Bangla Desh, there is no charity involved though.
hey make good useful things, we buy them, and they get a secure, living wage.
Although perhaps they also get other stuff too, stuff that we take for granted.
You know, dignity, respect, equality, security and freedom from fear.
Nothing really !
There definitely is no charity involved with these Planters
Grow Herbs, Tomatoes and Potatoes on your Patio or Balcony.
Or anything you like, anywhere you like – who am I to tell you what to do ! )
Drainage is taken care of, and the two larger Planters have sturdy handles to let you lug them around.
These planters could last you years, and they are lovely and cheerful even before your plants appear.
( You can even empty them and fold them away until next season if you like.)
