Large plastic water tank uses?  RSS feed

I have a large round plastic water tank that is surplus to requirements for water storage but I want to find a new use for it. It is over a meter wide and a meter high. I already have lots of tanks for compost tea and water so want to use it to grow something in. Any ideas?

I can't dig it in as I have heavy clay soil and can't get a digger in and believe me there is no way I can dig it down!

What about an edible Sacred Lotus or other edible water plant?

I should add I'm in the UK so not too warm here. Even summer is pretty hit and miss 😂

If you drilled a few small holes in the bottom of one side and made it lean that way a little for drainage, could you use it as a worm bin?
