Geoff Hamilton was not only a respected gardener and broadcaster but also a clever designer of simple, practical woodwork projects. His 1995 book "Cottage Gardens" contains instructions for several, including a bench, herb table, auricular theatre, planter, cold frame, compost container, and an obelisk. The latter is just what we need for growing sweet peas up!

The timer cost about £12. The decorative piece on top is a cistern ball. Geoff Hamilton would have found and recycled an old one but Wilko sell them for £1 so it hardly seemed worth troubling Beeston FREE-Recycle.
