that's it I'm going to make a newspapper pot maker extra deep with a filling tool at the weekend 

 

I wouldn't, James....there's still plenty of time to sow.

Now I need to shower....camera club night.

Got ya....well, as you probably know, sweet peas are very deep rooted and therefore need pots with a deep root run......this is why some people opt for loo roll inners.

I use this type of thing made from black plastic sheet, very cheap & effective.

Hello, James.....just need a little clarification. Are these the pots for sowing seed, or for planting out?

I usually prepare my SP beds in the autumn. I take out a trench about 18" deep & 2ft wide and add manure in the bottom (horse muck will do fine) then back-fill.

 

Grandpa had one just like it

Hi, Highland Jeannie.

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties, but thanks for sharing them.....spiders webs make great subject matter, don't they?

Just taken this pic especially for this thread. This is a pruning knife belonging to my granddad, who was head gardener for one of the pottery moguls of the day, during the late 1800s
