You mean the little flat things you water and they expand?

I have never used them, I have good success with seed compost and trays.

If I ever buy a plant in one of those, I always rip the netting off it, I dont like them.

I suppose if you grow certain plants that need growing in peat they would be ok.

I have really enjoyed your thread Marion, and these closing posts are lovely.  I am transported back in time and can see your children all doing their own thing in the garden.

I am so looking forward to reading the next one. 

Its like chapters in a book.

I found this link but have to disagree with some points. My daughter lives in St Austell, home of english china clay, they grow rampant in her garden. I bought a pot and split it hers have done much better than mine, she is forever digging them out.

Mine are in acid moorland soil, they do well, I have moved some to around the new pond.

I never really worry about what should go where, just plant them in and off they go.

May have been a bit cold for yours up there, although mine have been covered with snow and frost and do well.

Just try them and perhaps a covering of leaves or compost next winter.

I could post some up to you Nut, you sent me such a lovely lot of seeds that I was absolutely thrilled with. They soon spread, bit like Montbretia, you will be digging them out soon!.
