Used pallets are a really useful resource for any gardener. They are often free, or cheap to buy, and if you have a few skills then you can make a wide range of structures and aids for the garden. Joyce Russell shows you how


■ 2 wooden pallets

■ 5mm x 50mm screws

■ Porous garden material

■ Compost, plants, seeds

Tools: Nail bar (crow bar), hammer, saw, drill and 5mm bit, sheet of paper, screwdriver, pencil, scissors

The simplest starting point is to make a basic planter. You don’t need many tools and the freestanding version shown here can be knocked together in a couple of hours. The wall-mounted version is hung on lengths of strong chain. Both take up very little room and can be used to brighten any wall around a house or shed. Use them to grow plenty of herbs and salad, or fill with trailing flowers for a beautiful decorative planter.
