Ohhdaly woohdles, That looks complicated. The bottle one. Hope they don't ever get a blockage in those pipes. The tin one looks much more doable but would need loads of watering in the summer. Oh, and never underestimate a slug! Ninjas in disguise they are when it comes to nice fresh lettuce.

You're not joking Julia - unless you grow those lettuces perched in the middle of a cliff of salt, they're gonna get et.  And even then, they'll flaming try.  ::)

With the angle of those wall cans I was thinking the water would poor out very easily.

The pic I saw, but haven't managed to re-find, showed them hung one under the other so say, 4 across and 4 down so I recon with some water retaining gubbinses and the hope that water from the top will trickle through the holes down to the next one with a bit of luck we should be ok.  Maybe I should do them against a wall of copper to keep the slugs off though, I've still got a big bit of sheet somewhere.
