    I've got a lovely Senetti in a galvanised bucket with holes knocked into the base for drainage. Courgettes are grown in big plastic troughs on a low wall so they can hang down. All the herbs are in terracotta pots, a lot of small roses in containers. Potatoes in potato bags, carrots and Hamburg Parsley (a root veg) in huge plastic pots. The tomatoes go into very big Marshalls grow bags. I'm dying to do a sedum roof, but need to make something with a small roof firstimage

    I love your guttering idea; it's really neat.image
