I remember seeing the late, great sainted Geoff Hamilton making pots out of newspaper (I've run out of toilet roll centres) but my origami skills are rather limited. Does anyone remember how to make them? :?

Thanks thats brilliant, I did wonder how anyone would describe in words how to make it, I never expected the hi tech answer!

At least if it rains all day tomorrow I can make pots. :D

We spend every weekend evening making these its surprising how many you get through! we use them for peas beans, toms all the brassicas they are brill to just drop into holes on the plot after getting them off to a flying start!  They are much better than the toilet roll middles they fit nicely together in a tray and the loo rolls always seem to go black and manky! :shock:

The good thing is my young nieces like making them for me so I will have plenty until the novelty wears off. Getting a niece clean before her mother sees her is more of a challenge! :lol:

ps sounds like your weekends are dangerously exciting!
