Only have  a small space in the sun for growing, and want some herbs or flowers to mask an unslightly fence or a patch of concrete?  Try a planter made from re-constructed pallets as a temporary garden  space.  We are experimenting at Greening the Rubble with several designs, ranging from the heavy boxes made from several-pallet at our Piko site (photo at foot of this page &see post) to single-pallet structures which two people can easily lift.  A smaller sample is on display  in February 2012 through to Sunday 4th March close to the Canterbury Museum and i-site, just inside the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Rolleston Avenue.  It’s our contribution to the Garden City Trust Festival of Flowers.
