Quote from: Raven on March 08, 2022, 04:14:40 PMA warning for anyone who uses old car tyres to plant veg in . . . DON'T !I never knew until I saw this in my gardening magazine this morning, that it can be dangerous, and here is why." It was discovered that old tyres are damaging the environment, especially when used for growing plants within them.Watering and weathering biodegrades the rubber, which then releases toxic zinc and carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons into the soil that are absorbed by plants.If you are growing potatoes or other vegetables within a circle of tyres, they are liable to ingest toxins that would be injurious to health."
