Get your tickets for GrandFest!

24 Apr 2017 12:53:33

GrandFest, run by Royal Voluntary Service, is a one day festival to celebrate talented older people and the skills they can share with younger generations.

Learn a new skill for free!

To encourage older people to stay active and pursue their interests, Royal Voluntary Service have created GrandFest. This is a celebration of skills that older people can pass on to younger generations.

Over the years, RVS have brought together GrandMakers; a team of people over the age of 60 who have a traditional skill they enjoy sharing with others. These GrandMakers present masterclasses to small groups at their GrandFest events. Past masterclasses have included jam-making, crochet, basket weaving, dancing, bread making and woodworking.

The main GrandFest event will be at Spitalfields in London on Sunday 18th June. To book tickets for the event visit www.grandfest.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk. All masterclasses are free but an optional donation of £5 is welcome to help raise money for the charity.

Royal Voluntary Service is Cosyfeet’s charity of the year. We are raising money to help fund the important work they do to improve the lives of older people across Britain, helping them stay active, independent and socially connected.

How to make a vertical strawberry tube

21 Apr 2017 10:04:46

Make your own vertical strawberry tube to have the best strawberries you'll ever taste from your own garden!

The best strawberries you’ll ever taste will come from a garden. They have a rich, aromatic flavour that you just don’t get from supermarket strawberries. 

Strawberries are incredibly easy to grow and will thrive almost anywhere – in borders, containers or hanging baskets. A strawberry tower is an innovative way to grow lots of strawberry plants on a small plot of ground. It saves space by growing upwards which keeps the plants off the ground and out of reach from insects.

To make your own vertical strawberry planter you will need:

  • An electric drill with a hole cutting bit that will cut a 5 – 7cm hole
  • A 2mm or 3mm drillbit for the watering pipe
  • A length of PVC downpipe 100mm or 150mm diameter
  • End cap for the downpipe
  • A narrower diameter (15mm or thereabouts) length of downpipe for watering - make it about 8cm-10cm longer than the downpipe
  • A cork
  • A knife
  • Duct tape
  • A length of geotextile (or hessian) for wrapping the watering pipe
  • Twine for tying the fabric to the watering tube
  • Good fertile soil
  • 1 litre of coarse gravel
  • Strawberry plants
  • A few companion plants (nasturtiums or marigolds)
  • Large tub or box (to stand unit in whilst filling)
  • Fixing collar or ties

Step 1: Cutting

Decide on the length of the unit and cut the tower tube and watering tube accordingly. Don’t forget to make the watering tube 8-10cm longer.

Step 2: Drilling the watering tube

Drill vent holes in the watering tube. Only drill these in the top 2/3 of the tube as the water will run down to the bottom plants. If you put holes all the way down, the upper planter won’t get quite enough water as it will all rush out of the lower holes.

Step 3: Completing the watering tube

Cut the geotextile or hessian to the shape that will cover the holes in the watering pipe. You don’t want roots getting in there and clogging it up.

Carefully, with a knife, whittle down the cork until it fits the end of the watering tube. Now seal it off with duct tape.

Step 4: Cutting the holes in the tower

Cut the holes in the tower tube. Remember -  only put holes on the surfaces that will get sunlight. Make 3 rows of holes and stagger them with holes about 20cm depth apart vertically. Leave the last 20cm intact with no holes.

Step 5: Filling

Place the large container against a wall – a corner is best so the tube is less likely to fall over. Place end cap over the base of the tube. Insert the watering tube then fill the bottom 10 cm with coarse gravel.

Step 6:  Planting:

For the lowest hole, plant a companion plant as there is less incentive for pests to climb up. When filling, it’s easiest to pour the soil from the top and poke the plants in the holes. Make every 6th one a companion plant.

Step 7: Watering:

Make sure you water your plants daily in warmer weather and hopefully you’ll be enjoying delicious, home-grown strawberries all summer long. Happy gardening!

We would love to see a photo of your DIY strawberry plant tower. Email us a picture to creative@cosyfeet.com and we’ll feature it on our social media pages.

Make Your Own Foot Spa!

19 Apr 2017 12:11:15

Over the winter months we tend to forget about our feet. Now that warmer weather is hopefully on the way, why not get your feet sandal-ready with your own homemade foot spa!

Over the winter months we tend to forget about our feet. Now that warmer weather is hopefully on the way, why not get your feet sandal-ready with your own homemade foot spa.

1. Set up a bowl of warm water. Add some scented bubble bath, bath oil or foot soak and mix it in. Our Botanical Foot Soak is perfect for soothing tired or painful feet after a long day. It contains B5, a renowned moisturiser and skin softener, Tea Tree Oil for its antiseptic properties, Lavender Oil to cleanse and soothe and Geranium Oil for its soothing effect on all skin types.

Foot Spa

2. Soak your feet for five to ten minutes then dry them thoroughly using a clean, soft towel.

3. Clip your toenails to a suitable length using appropriate toenail clippers, such as our Professional Nail Clippers. Guide the clippers straight across the nail of each toe and avoid cutting nails into a curved shape. Don't cut your nails too short as it can encourage ingrown toenails. It can also leave your toenails susceptible to infection.

4. Massage your feet using a rich balm or cream such as our Manuka and Mint Foot Balm. The combination of natural Manuka and Mint helps stabilise the skin and provides potent anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties along with the wonderful soothing qualities of peppermint.
