Propagation is a great way to get a head start, before the season raises its gun and everything is off to a flying start, however in this race there are no false starts. It means plants can put up their feet, wear their comfy clothes and grow in the comfort of the great indoors or in a greenhouse. If getting a seed tray somehow landed at the bottom of your to-do list, don’t worry you won’t be caught with your pants down. These toilet roll planters are easy to make, they divide plants into seperate cells, and can be planted straight into the ground… win, win, win!
Unless your toilet paper habits are akin to Uncle John’s strict law for using the septic system, “one for wiping, one for polishing,” you will most likely have some toilet rolls at your disposal. They are much better off in your gardening hands, than off to the recycle bin. Poo-ticket propagation ticks all the right boxes and bowls. You’re re-using, you’re cleansing your conscience and hopefully your bathroom, and you’re saying goodbye to plastic seedling trays.
