There are so many alternatives on the market, to someone who hasn’t tried them all it will be difficult to decide which way to go. Listed below are some of them and an idea of what they are like when put to use.

  1. I bought these from you last year and found them easy to use and gave terrific results, so I returned for more. I have taken some photographs of the ones I planted this year, following your instructions. Do you have a place I can post them?

    1. Thank you for your comment Kath Batey. I’m glad you have found the liners easy to use. We are in the process of setting up a Facebook group page where we can all share photographs and the progress of your baskets. There will also be a opportunity to pick up some helpful hints and tips.
      All the very best
