Hessian sandbags

50 bags for £20 on 'thee bay'

50 x HESSSIAN SAND BAGS:

Each sand bag measures 33cm X 76cm
Complete with ties
manufactured from a good quality hessian.


I am thinking of doing quite a few 'reg' plants this year.:wassnnme:

Until the plants show sex i am trying to find a way to keep my plot layout open to change, whilst still taking advantage of ground moisture. Was thinking about these filled with soil and one plant dropped in hole in ground.

The idea being that; when the plants show sex i could move the remaining fems about the plots to allow enough room for each one, while avoiding empty spaces. Select stud males could be shifted to a safe pollen collecting site easily as well.

My concern is that roots grow more laterally than downward. These are from seed so will be taprooting, unlike clones. The shape of these is deep and narrow. Only 6 inches either side of plant but plenty of room for downward movement (2ft). :unsure:

Seems a bit silly in some ways, but am looking for a solution to the 'random pattern of males in plots' issue.

Cheers me dears...

Just brainstorming,the more input into a thread the more ideas are bandied about the more lightbulb moments,some are starting to think outside the box,realise there really are no limitations and intend to deversify their methods and techniques,its going to be a green season,laps of honour of the M25 dumping bagged plants here and there and whatnot and suchlike :guitar:
