Typepad HTML Email Hello, I bought them many years ago from a local garden centre, but they are easy to find – search on Amazon or Ebay for “spiral plant supports” . Mine are around 180cm/6ft and I’ve used them for all sorts of things over the years, flowers and veggies love to climb up them! https://www.amazon.co.uk/vidaXL-Spiral-Plant-Supports-Galvanised/dp/B079S5HRMM/ref=pd_sbs_86_2?_encoding=UTF8pd_rd_i=B079S5HRMMpd_rd_r=15e66823-7986-11e8-ad55-9fcc55f03a63pd_rd_w=MSOcOpd_rd_wg=m4w4tpf_rd_i=desktop-dp-simspf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLEpf_rd_p=5179604776422437276pf_rd_r=4MD80MTV2EWNJDWJNEVBpf_rd_s=desktop-dp-simspf_rd_t=40701psc=1refRID=4MD80MTV2EWNJDWJNEVB Lucyxxx

It occurred to me at the weekend that as we only have six more weeks of the school year left, it would be a good idea to make the very most of every available little snippet of child free time... Continue reading
