Some of my friends and family have been asking what on earth I do with all of the toilet cardboard rolls that they have been collecting for me over the last few weeks. I thought I would just show you some examples of how my plants are growing happily in these biodegradable containers.
At the moment these rolls are perfect containers for my early peas and onion sets that are waiting to go in the ground at the end of the month. The new batch of empty rolls will soon come in handy for my french beans, runner beans and sweetcorn. I will show you images of these when I plant them at the beginning of April.
So hopefully the mystery has been taken out of why I need so many and all I ask is that they keep on coming!
I have loads sweet peas in loo roll tubes as well! But your tubes look a lot tidier than mine…
Thanks for your comment. My sweet peas have yet to make an appearance as I think I sowed them a little late. They were planted in modules as I had run out of loo rolls at the time. 😦
Ugh! Sweetpeas! Sorry, this has nothing to do with your post (lol) but I put down some sweet pea mulch a while ago because it was (at the time) cheapr that sugar cane mulch, and I’ve had many litttle sugar cane seedlings grow up, entangle themselves in things, and then die! Its annoying!!
Thanks. I hate to buy stuff when there is plenty of life left in stuff we throw away.
That is really genius..I better save mine too…LOL
Thanks for your comment.
They’re a resource that very household uses so you’ll soon have a plentiful supply if you start to save early:-)
You can also add them to the compost heap to form the ‘brown’ layer needed if you end up with too many.
What a great idea, I might borrow this!
They work a treat. They are free, biodegrade and you don’t have to worry about finding space to store all of the plastic pots for the rest of the year.
what a brilliant idea!!!
Thanks. They come in really handy.
