Those were not what I sort of had in my head, so your dedication is most definitely appreciated. I didn't realise that 6" and 8" were only 1 and 2 gallons respectively...... I had thought that the 8 inch was probably the 5 gallon size. I will make sure I keep a copy of this email in my special folder where I keep things of interest like the Celcius to fahrenheit conversion tables and the Zone conversions. Methinks it will get used quite a lot at times while reading bits and pieces as I have often come across gallon references and was not sure what they equated to. Thanks for taking the time to do the measuring for me!! <grin> Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8/9 mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Growing....
