I’ve always been interested in growing some vegetables in the garden, but, as I’m sure some of you can testify, there’s always another project that demands attention. Recently I signed up for a fantastic offer from the BBC and got some free seeds, which has finally inspired me to grow my own – I don’t think the seed offer is still running, but you BBC You can have a look at the mini site at

Our English country garden is very small and we had no spare border for vegetables, so we needed a planter. I couldn’t find a big one for under £60, so I helped my old man make one.

Below is an account of our magical journey to gardening ownership… read on and maybe one day you too can become a gardening owner. Imagine that.

Safety Notes: This instruction involves the use of power tools, so if you are just a teenager, you must be accompanied by an adult. No more vegetables will make a severed arm grow back…

We managed to get most of our stuff from Wicks at discount prices – we bought decomposed decking plaque for about half the price and £1.99 a bag of decomposed compost. It came repackaged in strong polythene, which we then used for lining. Most garden centers or DIY shops will have some equipment damaged by careless forklift drivers who will sell it cheap – take a look at the back or ask someone. It’s definitely worth it – our planter only cost £32 (not counting the hardware and accessories we didn’t already have). This includes filling it with compost and, thanks to the BBC, the seeds we will plant.

Make a cutting list of the parts you need to make the planter – then you can work out what you need to buy and what you can use from the shed.

Tip from my dad: measure and cut a ‘master’ piece, then use it as a template to cut the rest of the pieces. That way, even if it sticks out a little, all the pieces will come out the same. It is more important to have its own internal integrity than to be mathematically correct.

With a little extra effort in some places you can make the grower look more professional. Before building it we chamfered the edges of the long side pieces, this was done by setting the chop saw at a 45 degree angle and starting 12mm from the edge (our deck was 30mm). You can see the result in the pictures.

Tip from my dad: Chimneys under the feet to prevent wood splitting. I had to go on an off-cut and make it look like a scar that could kill a vampire! My father just eyeballed all six legs and they came out perfectly. I hate to admit it, but sometimes he is right about things.

Now you’ve cut your pieces, you’ve got the edges looking great and it’s all there ready to build…

A. Prepare your clamps, then pull out the first cord and leg. Take a long side, a short side and a leg and put them together as shown in the picture (1). It’s up so that it sits at the end. A short off-cut under the leg is to place the leg slightly below the top of the planter so you can’t see it from the side. See Figure 1.

B. Assemble the sections so that you can still get the two screws in both decking sections. See pictures 2 and 3.

C. Pull the edges of the decking to the footing. There should be a screw in each corner of the decking boards. See Figure 4 for approximate screw position.

D. Go to the next corner – don’t forget to close the leg with an offcut. See Figure 5.

F. Lay all the side pieces down – sort them first to see what order they should go in based on any warped pieces. See Figure 7 for approximate screw positions and Figure 8 showing all side pieces attached and the planter turned right up.

G. Turn the plant back up – legs in the air. Measure the distance between the legs of the long side corners, in our case it is 1240 mm. Halve this number and measure and mark the bottom edge of the bottom piece on both sides. This is the center point at which you want to attach the middle legs. Remember to attach them using the offcut and six screws. See Figure 9 for a shot of the plant attached to the middle leg.

H. Cut thick pieces of wood to measure the distance between each leg to support the slats. You will need two end pieces and then four side pieces
