    Thanks AP, might try and get some and see if they fit inside a cell tray if so I could always remove the bottom and leave them sitting on matting, trying something is half the Finn in gardening

    Again unable to edit, it is half the fun
    As I can't speak either Finnish or Swedish there is no point in having half a Finn in the garden

    If you had half a Finn you'd be swimming round in circles.

    I had a looksee in our local Garden Centre earlier. The only cell packs that looked as though they would fit were part of a long windowsill propagator. Instead I bought the smallest ones they had but were still too big but I'll just pack them out with compost

    Just a wee update. B&Q's Verve plantpack 40's are a really snug fit for the Root Riots from the refill packs. The smaller size cells could be an issue for some things but are spot on in this instance.

    Have tried several GCs for root riots, but no luck, have now decided to go for soil blockers, so will now be trailing different soil mixes to A/ see what mix holds together the best and B/ what mix is the cheapest, but still holds together

    I've just been reading your comments on the Chatback thread, AP. Can you say what the problems were? I've been looking at these too. I'm hoping to do mostly paper pots this year, but time will slip away from me in a lot of cases, I know, so I'm being realistic. I'd be using them for germinating seeds, not for clones. Thanks for any advice.
