Not beyond the bounds to make your own boxes/packaging to post plants.  If you are that rare specimen without cardboard of some description hanging around, take a trip to the local recycling centre.

Not all of them will allow you to remove cardboard already dumped but some are still sensible and will let you take what you require.  

Other than that, wait at the entrance and it won't be long before you can approach a happy tipper who will be only too pleased to let you have some.

Purchasing specially made boxes simply exacerbates the waste problem.

See original post


Sounds like a plan, it just speeds things up if the box is already the right size to fit, but I have sellotape so it could be the recycle option :)

Hi, does anyone know where to buy (in bulk) these cardboard boxes that are used to post 3 x 9cm potted plants. I can only find one supplier and they are quite expensive. Thanks.

How is the best way to propagate Geum Totally Tangerine and Geranium Rozanne, I don't think they are grown from seed ?

thanks everyone, makes sense that they survive when they self seed on there own, so outside it is.

I have some hellebore seedlings just coming through in a seed tray, is it best to put it in to a cold greenhouse over winter or leave it outside?

thanks everyone for the advice

Simple question (hopefully) but cant seem to find an answer on google... If a perennial has mildew, does that mean the mildew will come back next year or because the plant dies back over winter will that get rid of it?

Thanks for the replies, I will bring it in the house for a few days and see if the warm perks it up, if not I will feed it....  fingers crossed
