Having walked round B&Q looking for something to stake and tie my trees I was disheartened to see that nice rounded pointed posts were £7.99 and rubber ties were £1.50ea.
Silly money really, my trees were only a little more than that!
So I hit upon an idea, some pressure treated timber £5 cut in half (£2.50) and sharpened with my trusty gransfor brux axe and a trip to the bicycle repair shop heralded some busted inner tubes.
Couple of nails, vola! Staked and tied trees!
As you can see below, our rescue cats couldn’t be more pleased!
