In (salvage) part 2, Bunny visits Horticulturist and Landscape Architect Ian Hodgson’s garden, which he keeps dynamic by sourcing throw outs and repurposes them to embellish his small city garden. Steel hawser cable becomes sculpture, old cable drums garden furniture, a huge door an eye-catching boundary addition, clothes tidies become ornaments and micro meadows are grown in pots. A beautiful, reclaimed turf seat is a top attraction.
Adam Caplin has written books on hunting down junk and repurposing it to furnish his garden. He gives top tips and how to find and use. Beautiful containers from a wide range of unexpected items.
Bunny chats to the Wombles who have ‘Totter’s Rights’ to a council tip. (Something that has been discarded can legally taken by someone who has found it). They sift through the tips and then give to needy causes or sell for a small donation discarded items. Bunny discovers some beautiful cast iron columns and much more. The most expensive item the Wombles found was a n 1850 Louis Vuitton trunk, tipped off a junk lorry which was valued at £2,000. If you know great sources and keep your eyes open you can come across amazing, serendipitous finds, far more satisfying than employing your credit card!
