My mum came up with a great idea...making seed starter plant pots out of toilet roll tubes!  Eco-friendly, biodegradable and uses up toilet roll tubes!  Wish I'd had them this year, I ended up using plastic glasses and yoghurt pots!  At least I have loads ready now for next spring.   Smiley

It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

Just an update for anyone who's interested.  Used some of these to plant some spring onions, radishes and little gem lettuces.  Just replanted the radishes today, and the cardboard seed starter pots worked a treat!  The roots had started to grow through the gaps at the bottom.  Worked really well!

Yes that's right.  You make 4 cuts about 1inch long up the tube, and fold them inwards, tucking the last one in.

This is a fabulous idea.  I started my toilet paper tube collecting as soon as I saw this post!

Glad to hear it's been of use!  It's such a resourceful use for something that everyone has.
