  • Cheers folks.

    I'll use some to insulate seed trays next spring and the kneeling pad idea is a great suggestion - I'll definitely be doing that (not that I'm getting older or anything).

    • If you buy meat from supermarkets, and you chop and change between, you can end up with good-sized black plastic tubs and matching clear tops - instant propogator

        • Repurposed walking boot lace became a drawstring for a pair of trousers.
          Work decided to give us (compulsory) uniforms this week, but the flimsy elastic waistband failed to hold my trousers up when I tried them on....

          • When your jeans give up the ghost and you cut them up for rags cut the seams out first, they make great plant ties and are bio-degradable to boot. the tarparlin bags that buiding supplys come in can be unpicked and used to line your pallet compost heap, cover the water tank to prevent drowning birdies, cover the soil to kill off weeds, wrap around pots to keep the roots warm , the only limit is what you can think of to do with them.

            • ^I use worn-out t-shirts for plant ties. Nice and soft and stretchy and you can tear/cut them to a suitable width for the type of shoot. Big wide ones for main stems, thinner ones for supporting bunches of toms, for example.

              • A lot of company's are now using lambs wool packaging for their produce. this makes great insulation for sensitive plants for the winter... Just smells a bit lamby...
