    If they’re for growing strawberries in like I did when I was a kid, garden centres do actually sell them for the purpose, but there are (probably) cheaper alternatives like other people have mentioned. Bus depots, truck repair centres, that sort of place. But garden centres definitely sell them. Hope this helps, and good luck with the project!

    Ask at a construction or trucking company what they do with their wornout tires. Either they’ll have some on hand or you’ll know who changes their tires. Not all old tires can be recapped or recycled, so that tire place can let you know the next time they get some of those rejects in.

    Ask you local tyre dealer. They replace them on the vehicles and then are left with the ‘bald’ tyre, they should be happy to give them to you.

    When I was looking for car/truck inner tubes I went to ATS first. The guy there pointed me in the direction of this lorry/HGV garage on an industrail estate. If you look in the yellow pages for HGV or Van maintenance, or even under commercial vehicles, it’ll give you a list of places to try. Yell.co.uk is flipping great for this.

    Kudos to you for your recycling effort! (I’m a fellow creative Womble)
