    Never seen these before. Odd no instructions came with them or is there a makers name that you can Google?

    K67, thanks for replying, I was given these a couple of years ago by someone who sold plants as a side-line, they'd probably been languishing in his shed for a while, so, no instructions I'm afraid. Amazon sell something similar but no real info on how to use. I knew someone would come to my rescue from GW though.

    Thank you K67, I've just watched those videos, very helpful. I'll give them a try this week, see how I get on. Didn't even think of YouTube!
  • Hi K67, just an update on the advice you gave. I tried some Brussels Sprouts using the felt, the seeds were quite old but I got quite a few that worked, the felt fell apart though so it was difficult to plant them out. I managed a few but slugs enjoyed them before I had chance to protect them properly! Well, it was worth a try but I think that they were too fragile to be used, thanks anyway
