I use an old fashioned paper cutter (picked up at the same dump), sort of a guillotine style. Cut strips, turn them 90 degrees, chop, chop, chop. I'm certainly not a big nursery, but for the hobbyist it's fine. I probably have a couple of hundred band pots with screen inserts, and swear by them. Funny--I just shared some plants with a friend yesterday, and told him to make sure he returns the band pots. I'm sure they're common as dirt in Oregon, but around here they're hard to come by, short of a big order to Anderson or Stuewe. --Roy NW of Boston Still a frost advisory for tonight, but forecast temp is up to 33. Brought in the tender cyclamen (rohlfs, africanum), but that's about it.
