"It is excellent wood and arrived in perfect condition. I tried making a few pots and really liked them. I think I will probably use them for my tomatoes this year and see how they do. I haven't filled them with dirt yet so I don't know how they will hold up to soaking from below."

"These are great little tools. I have used them for three years with good success. I have found a few tricks that make them sturdier. When you fold under the paper on the bottom, fold in the part where the seam comes together first, then the remaining folds will help everything to stay in place. Another help is to place the pots together with the seam facing inward toward another pot on a pan or tray. This helps the pots keep their shape as you water them and the plants grow. The pots need to be checked often for watering. Since the amount of dirt used is so small, they need frequent watering. I have beets and carrots growing in them right now. I find it gives my seeds a good start before putting them in the garden. I even start seeds that are normally planted directly into the garden, just to make sure I have a good germination rate. These are great tools. Kids really enjoy making the pots and growing their own plants in them. It can be a family learning experience."

"Love it and have so much fun making my pots. I have used the pre-formed ones at the store and they do not break down at all. This will be a hoot for us this year. Thanks "

"I absolutely love this. I started making my pots and soon as I got it. Easy and fun to use. My seeds are growing so well and I just wish the weather would cooperate so I can start transplanting. They are more than ready to put in the ground. Getting a head start on growing seeds was something I was extremely excited about doing. "

"Very good tool for the small gardener. In an afternoon and with a daily edition of the local paper I made enough small paper pots to begin my hot house pre- planting. The process became sort of meditational. I look forward to making more pots for next years expanded garden."
