I use the toilet roll inners to start my carrots , parsnips and leeks,most of the people on my allotment site had trouble growing ( or not growing as it turned out these, partly because the soil is only about 4inches ( ok,10cms) deep in places, but last year I managed a crop of carrots on a raised bed, starting them in the greenhouse at home, in the inner rolls, then thinning out there and transplanting the lot, straight into the prepared raised bed. this year I'm trying the parnsips and leeks the same way, well almost, i am planning to only half fill the ones for the leeks, then top them upo as they grow, ever the optimist !!!
