Request for 1 litre plastic pots

We’re running short of pots, especially the 1 litre size, so if you have any that you would like to dispose of, we’d be grateful if you could leave them in the crate which we’ll put by the gate on Saturday.

We find washed 1kg yoghurt pots are very useful for planting as well.

Come by the gate where we will put out pots, a price list and a collecting tin –
.
and if you have any questions, there will be people weeding close by, so do give us a shout.
