No i haven't, but what do you use for the soil? Most of the time I use toilet roll tubes and put a multi purpose compost in them. I do use my old plastic cell trays but don't buy any new. Thanks for letting me know about it, hope that you have a good growing year.Have you guys tried the soil cube (aka soil block) makers? According to the marketing story they are popular in the UK. I got annoyed with the peat pots not breaking down, or the compressed disks leaving the net, or plastic being a mess so I spent the $30 for a block maker 5 or 6 years ago. At the level I use it I save $30 a year over buying peat pots or disks and I only have a medium kitchen garden (not a market garden or CSA farm)
For the soil cubes I use a mix around 2 parts native soil or compost, 2 parts peat or coco coir, and 1 part sand or perlite I may mix in a granulated fertilizer or rock dust. Bagged potting mix also works if you want the expensive route. It's really pretty forgiving but works best if you sift it out to about a 10 mm screen. The soil cubes are amazingly resilient and I have pulled up full grown beets with a soil cube still formed around the tap root. I water them with a sprinkle-head watering can or a hose nozzle set to "mist", but don't leave them out in the rain. I also built custom flat trays to perfectly fit the blocks - sized ranging from just 8 blocks to 52 blocks.No i haven't, but what do you use for the soil?
