Cheap seed trays and seed offers
« on: January 20, 2009, 13:43 »
Yesterday I picked up 5 x 20 seed trays from the pound shop ...I bought two packs, that should keep me going.. :wink:

Also Wyevale are doing Suttons seeds 3 for 2...

Thanks for the bargain tips everyone, I think it's the second time I've ever been in the pound shop... :shock:  :D

How much were they?

(Sorry that has to have an outing at least once a year!) :lol:
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

The only trouble with some cheap seed trays is that when you get the compost in they are a bit hard to handle. It is easy to break an edge off when wandering around the plot vaguely wondering where to plant your seedlings. I've found the Wilkos slightly dearer ones more robust.
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

Yes i found these today at 69p each and bought a few, as you say the real cheapies break so easily.  Did buy the cheapie deviders tho....cos usually i just throw them away..........i'm too heavyhanded getting the seedlings out :oops:

i saw these and nearly bought them but decided they were an odd shape and wouldn't have a tray to put them in, they are square and i don't think i have every seen a square tray, although thinking about it now they might line up nicely in a grow bag tray
