9th annual Plant Sale 9th May

March update.

We have plenty of pots, kindly donated by Gary and Marg.

Now we have to scrub them all and sterilize them. ready for seed starting and potting up. I had planned to get started this Thursday but it turned out to be a grey and rainy day and not really a pot washing day at all. As soon as the sun comes out….

Monday 23rd March . 3 of us scrubbed and sterilized pots, starting with the small ones and the 4″ ones so there is a nice stock ready for pick-up.

We also have a pile of beautiful ‘dirt’ to mix with Sea Soil and peat moss for our growers.

Please contact me if you would like to help or pick up supplies of pots, soil, seeds or growing instructions.

    I use 3/4″ or 1/2 ” planks Screwed Squarely together (screws on each corner) and then I take a 5/16″ drill bit and drill a hole every 1/2″ apart on the line where the boards meet (maybe 10 to 15 holes depending on the length of the boards used.. This makes it easy to get the cocoons out come fall and also easier to clean the holes out as well. Number each board so that the holes will line up properly and easy to screw together for the following season.
