Tomato Growpots, any good?

Posted: 16/03/2013 at 12:22

We have them and have used them for tomatoes grown outdoors only, not in the greenhouse. They do facilitate watering and feeding and the plants have indeed had substantial root balls. Not a fat lot of good however since the tomatoes invariably get blighted outdoors. Not gong to strongly recommend them cos there are indeed cheaper alternatives!

Exactly the same siuation for us chicky - we just keep buying new ones. Be good to know of a longer lasting one but maybe 4 years is in fact value for money considering they are not that expensive to buy?

Our local greengroce is selling 3 bunches for £2! Not a lot of help to you maybe but try your local shops/markets?

Very good Geoff!

Definitely not a poplar - have one of those (previously 2 but one had to go) - the bark is totally different. Looks a bit like birch to me too.Post a photo when the leaves unfurl!
