Long toms

Hi All

I just checked online and Repotme.com has "Long Toms", but I can't figure out if they're injection molded and more rigid or the cheap blow molded type.

For the hobbyist, they're not that expensive but if you're buying a lot of them then it may get a bit expensive.

Hi,

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.
