Blue Peter Moment! Reusing bottles

Posted: 13/04/2013 at 14:47
I have plopped one over a dahlia cutting, took the lid off and left it to its own devices!! Spray in the hole at the top to keep the leaves moist! Fingers crossed!

Anyone out there save and use pop bottles to made propogators, cloches etc?? I have for the first ever time. I have also used one to put over a fresh dahlia cutting. Do throwing it out there, good, bad, uses. Does it help in rooting cuttings?

Any clue why my gazania came up and were ontop of the vermiculite. Literally roots facing the stars. Gently had to turn up and poke back in. Wondered if it was because I used vermiculite. Only got 11 out of 20 seeds!

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

Oh no!!!! Can you take cuttings from them??? If so and easy I will grown replacements and then replace. If you know what I mean
