RE: ANOTHER money saving idea from a non-gardener. Following my advice on how gardeners can recycle their unwanted wheelbarrows, I have now discovered another money-saver that I would like to share with you. I had noticed that I was replacing my hanging baskets between summer and winter and vice versa and realised that this was causing considerable expense. However, I do not thing I am the only one to do this, I am sure that many people throw away their old baskets in the belief that their contents have died. I decided to experiment and see whether I could keep my baskets going throughout the year, and was stunned when I discovered that the plants were not dead at all, but simply out of season and, with a little care, they returned later in the year.We are now entering into a time of economic uncertainty where every penny counts and little ideas such as these can go a long way.I therefore urge you not to throw away your summer of winter baskets but try to nurture them throughout the entire year, so that you will not need to spend money replacing them.This is another money saving idea from a non-gardener.CHRIS BYRNE - Wavering Down House, Cross
