    Default Paper pots for seeds

    Ok, I don't have that many seeds to swap but am willing to swap some seeds for paper pots, my bf got me one of T&M's papper pot makers for Christmas last year and I've been making and 'trading' loads through my local LETS group.

    The pots are a little like pete pots, about 1" - 1 1/2" across and 3" or deeper (I can make them deeper for starting leeks, carrots, spring onions, etc. in) and hold there shape very well.

    I'd like cabbage, kale, leek or sweetcorn, but if you'd like some pots just let me know what you have to swap.

    I can't help you with the seeds but I'd love to know more about the paper pot makers.

    Did you get them from Thompson and Morgan through t'internet?

    Hi there,

    just wondering what a LETS group is and does? I've not heard the term before.

    Thanks,

    Not sure what it stands for if anything, but a LETS group is a group of people who trade their time/ skills etc. for credits which they can then use for buying someone elses skill or time etc. Some people like plumbers and electricians have obvious skills people want, or others might grow veg and give that away for credits or someone might offer to do washing/ ironing - could be anything almost!

    Here's a link LETS Link UK: Homepage Find your local area and see if there's a LETS group there!
