Long toms

My idea for a pot for growing seedling bulbs would be

2 inches square, 6 inches high

Such dimensions are likely to fall over, so it would have an 
interlocking design to allow pots to support one another.

It would have legs, so that the bottom of the pot is well clear of the 
bottom of the seed tray - preventing water accumulating.

I'd probably copy that design (can't recall the name) which just has a 
cross to support the compost - again promoting free drainage (or maybe 
have a lattice bottom).

I do have long toms, for growing clematis in, I can see the attraction 
for full size bulbs, but their volume is too big for seedlings.

In the past I cut lengths of 2 inch diameter water pipe to make long pots.
