Sliced Large Plant Pots and Buckets ???
« on: January 14, 2013, 21:25 »
Anyone any idea what the previous owner of my plot may have been doing with all these sliced large plant pots and buckets?

Only thing I can think is that with all the glass I found he may have been putting them over plants with glass on to as mini cold frames!

Growing rings? I use them in the GH for my Tom's. Plant your tomato plant then as it grow's slip one of those rings over them and fill the ring with compost. All those little hairs on the stems then turn into feeder roots.

Ring culture sprang to mind - but same thing!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

i saw something like that in wilkos the other day, just what the guys have said you grow toms in growbags and they sit in the growbag .... must also say they were quite expensive to buy..

That did cross my mind but the ones I had seen were watering pots (see below) - My brother in law suggested I just chuck them but they had to be there for a reason.

With the amount of growhouse covers I have found under the weeds he could have been growing a good number of Toms out of growbags!

I cant just have a pile of these things, perhaps a large pole and play- hooplar with them for storage until I use them on my Tomatoes

Just tie them up in a loop of rope and hang them up somewhere convenient.

I use similar rings ( cut from the big water dispenser bottles ) around newly planted squashes and cues. It gives them a little sheltered microclimate out of the wind while they get established.

They would take up a lot less space if sorted into same sizes and fitted inside each other.
