Re-using polystyrene for veg seedlings

Posted: 30/03/2012 at 08:48

I always use them for my seeds and never had a problem with the roots systems. You buy plants this way that have been grown in these containers.

I also use my empty egg boxes for growing seeds off as well. Keeps them out off landfill sites.

Keep up the good work.

Talkback: How to deter slugs with copper tape

Posted: 30/03/2012 at 08:45

Forget copper tape, ask your local hair dressers or barbers for their chop off hair.

This is like barbwire on the slugs and will break down in the soil as well. With regards to heavy clay soil. If you know anyone who has a wood burner, get the wood ash and fine grit and spinkle it on the soil. Use garden compost as well and when its not too dry dig it over. If you dont want to plant anything in it this year grow green manure over it. I use red clover and once the plants have flowers just dig it all into the ground. Over the years this soil will get better if you do this every Oct - January.

I always do it this way, never had a problem with the plants. tend to have problems with Thompson and morgan trying to add on more postage. This tends to scare me away from ordering.
