Default Fruit pots

Hi Iliy. If you know anybody who grows their own fruit like, strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and so on the pots are excellent for freezing these.

Planting things? I use them for starting off my vegetables in. When they are bigger i just transfer to a bigger pot, and repeat the process again. One of my windows has a long line of them in it. :-)

Default Teachers

Perhaps a trainee primary school teacher or a primary school teacher might be appreciate of those, but not until September 5 onwards...

Default seedlings.

The plastic containers are perfect to start off packets of seeds wether they
are flowers or veg. if they dont have lids cover with cling film.
happy growing :-)
