Re: Decision made!

I'm thinking nut & bolt either where dot is or the arrow or both that way it can be dismantled easily.

Re: Your (meanest)/most economical gardening habits

Been known to collect card board off skips or put out for collecting always ask first though.

Have neighbours that give/save me their card board, tea bags, food scrapes, grass trimmings & hedge/tree cuttings.
