A clean pot is a good pot

Pots stacked together, just how we like them!

The SOWN nursery runs on a tight budget and we reduce, reuse and recycle wherever we can. So we are always happy for you to return any empty plant tubes once you've planted their contents. BUT....

returning dirty tubes mean the nursery volunteers then spend hours scrubbing out the dried mud and potting mix before reuse. So if you are bringing back used tubes, please try and rinse them clean first and stack them together, so they can be quickly sterilised and be put back into service. This saves time in the nursery, which means we have more time to grow even more plants!
