I am loving it :)

Just recently joined and interested in winter sowing, after receiving some lovely seeds from generous members.

My question is, can I use peat pelts inside the recyclable container?

thanks wendy

You know, i'm not sure about that. Have you been to the main Winter Sowing site and read the FAQs? Maybe there's something in there. Or you can go to and try to find an answer there. Let us know if you do.

Off the top of my head, i'd say no, but i can't think of any reason why not - better check with the experts!

Too small and they will dry out very quickly. You'll be watering 5 times a day ;)
