Strong case made for seed shar­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - Gardening - ROBERT GUY­TON

pot­ting shed or re­cy­cling bin in good time, but for those of us who could be de­scribed as ‘‘ca­sual gar­den­ers’’, these plas­tic ves­sels can drift, hang about and linger in the gar­den for longer than is seemly.

At this time of the year, there’s also an added peril: growth! Plas­tic bits and pieces left ly­ing about now are truly in dan­ger of quickly dis­ap­pear­ing into the un­der­growth, not to be found till au­tumn, and that’s not ideal, es­pe­cially if you need them for other gar­den­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as pot­ting up young plants. Get them out now, while you still can!
