    Thanks Becky! I had a good time doing it + they needed to be separated since they were getting so big in one pot.

    Cheers,

    I feel the same way and I have such limited space. I may give it a shot once though ... The seedlings in the 1inch clay pots look adorable! I am rooting for those 2 guys.
    Thanks Bruce for the tutorial.

    Bruce, thanks for such a great tutorial. I'm thinking of getting some compots, but didn't have a clue what to do with them, but as usual, you are right there, to the rescue.

    I'm bookmarking this one!!
