Sweet Pea jenga...
I'm moving on a batch of Sweet Pea seeds into these root trainer pots. These give a good long depth for the plants to grow strong roots ready for planting out.
They're very space efficient too, increasingly important as we get started on the new seasons seeding next week.
This tower is enough for just a fraction of the Sweet Pea plants we grow each Summer.
Keeping single-use plastics to a minimum is an important part of improving our sustainabllity. These pots are plastic & much tougher than they seem at first glance.
Treated carefully, these are now being used for their 8th season. Some pots are used multiple times in a season as they're good for beans & Sunflowers too.
Just a quick brushover to clean them up & we're ready to go...
To grow a small number of Sweet Pea plants at home, use toilet roll tubes stood in mushroom trays.
