Alternative seedling protection.

Postby brendanb » Mon Nov 09, 2009 7:15 am

Get your empty 2L or 3L plastic milk cartons, cut off the bottom and remove the lid.
Put them over your new plants and drive a stake through the spout and into the ground (be careful not to skewer your new plant).
Nicely protects the yound plants from pets and kids as well as from birds scratching around for worms and also provides a bit of protection from the hot sun.

Great example of the the philosophy of reuse and recycle and it saves you a bit of money.
