    Well, this makes a change, most of us have the opposite problem: what to do with all the non-recyclable pots we accumulate!  If you ask for plant pots on Freecycle, you'll probably be deluged.

    You can buy a wooden widgit to make paper pots for seeds or cuttings. If you Google "paper potter", you'll find several suppliers.  All sorts of packaging can be turned into plant pots by punching a hole in the bottom: .yogurt pots, cans, juice cartons.  For funky pots for houseplants, buy old vinyl records in a charity shop and immerse them in boiling water.  By the time they're cool enough to handle, you can mould them into pot shapes.

    Think you’re right @Fairygirl ... it seems that cooper and smith have a business on Fbook ... home and garden sort of stuff ... I don’t do Fbook so I’ve not seen it ... but I suspect this is another of those unsuccessful attempts to blag free advertising 😡

    Anything that starts with 'seo' is going to raise suspicions. Not very discreet!
