Or­gan­ise your shed

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

It’s all too easy, at the end of a tir­ing day pot­ter­ing, to shove tools, pots and com­post back in the shed willy nilly. But be­fore long this ap­proach leads to a chaotic mess where you can’t find your other gar­den­ing glove or se­ca­teurs when you need them. Keep­ing the shed tidy is much eas­ier when ev­ery­thing has a des­ig­nated home, so take ad­van­tage of a cool dry day to get or­gan­ised. Re­cy­cle, bin, keep: Empty the shed and sort ev­ery­thing into these three cat­e­gories. Throw out ex­pired seeds, so­lu­tions and pow­ders (dis­pose of any haz­ardous chem­i­cals at your waste re­cy­cling cen­tre). Stack and re­cy­cle sur­plus pots at a lo­cal gar­den cen­tre or do­nate to a gar­den­ing club. In­vest in crates and shelv­ing: Give ev­ery­thing a home – place all dec­o­rat­ing tools in one crate, gar­den­ing tools in an­other, bar­be­cu­ing tools in an­other. Fix a rack to the wall or door: Mag­netic knife racks are a good way to keep small tools in one spot. Hang larger tools from wall hooks to free up floor space. This avoids the risk of trip­ping over them and hurt­ing your­self.
