101 things you can plant in

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

:lol: I once had an MX5 that often looked like that. Almost every trip to the garden centre ended up with something sticking up out of the roof. I once drove all the way from High Wycombe to Swindon with an apple tree sticking out of the back window.

Before that I had a mini which had grass growing out of the radiator for a while.

The best I can contribute at the moment is onions that I grew last year in a pallet on its side. No pics though I'm afraid.
