    No won't cause any harm. This method was told to me by someone who does tissue culture as it's what they do to make sure the plant material is clean to start with.

    As to spotting disease not really unless they are showing signs of scab or the like. Just make sure they look clean and are firm & thats about the best you can do.

    thanks nick - where do you get your tubs from - potato tubs are expensive and dont hold that much either.

    We have a sort of nursery near us that sells 25litre pots for just over a quid so I got some of those plus all my aquaintances save me there old plant pots & cellpack & I fill them with bedding & sell them back to them Lol One of them had recently bought some big trees/shrubs so I snaffled those ones as well !

    Do you have pound shop near you as they are a good source of cheap tubs?

    You don't have to use tubs, you can use florist's buckets or old compost bags just as easily.
