Here is our new garden creation:
A teepee ( well actually it's a garage for cars and trucks at the moment.)
Made from beanpole bamboo sticks, twine and old stems from artichoke plants.
The artichoke tubers not flowers; they grow over 6ft tall!
Some ivy is woven around it, I couldn't find much of it,
however it would look great covered in it.
I was inspired by the willow tunnels and shapes we saw at the Welsh Botanical Gardens.
Apparently you have to plant them by the end of Feb.
When we looked how much the kits cost ( from £60 upwards),
we decided to have a bash at it ourselves.
Total cost: £0
