We've been making a conscious effort for a couple of years now to reduce the amount of plastic we use in the garden.
So we've pulled together some of the most useful wooden items that can be used when growing your plants from seed.
The set includes the following:
Wooden pricking stick – this one is particularly good because as well as helping you to sow seeds to the right depth (with 2cm and 3cm markings), it also has a flattened side so when you prick out delicate seedlings you can more easily get between the plants without doing damage. (x 1)
Wooden garden dibber – everyone needs and uses a garden dibber for replanting their seedlings (as well as planting bulbs). It does exactly what you need, but is brilliant quality, with good clear measurements from 2cm up to 12.5cm. (x 1)
Wooden plant labels – these are a good size for writing all the notes you need (yes you can use lollipop sticks but they are tiny to write on) and they look good in your pots or at the end of your rows too. (x5)
Wooden planting clamps – these a great way of keeping your plants under control without resorting to plastic ties. They are particularly good as they can be moved around easily, and they have large holes so there is plenty of space for the plants to grow in them without damaging the stems. They can be used for climbing plants such as cucumbers, beans, sweet peas etc. (x10)
Supplied in a tin box which you can either continue to keep them in or switch to be used to store your seeds.
