Juice cartons. Ahem. We actually recycled about a year’s worth of juice cartons because they were not being used for any creative project whatsoever. I’m talking about the big one litre ones. But, recently, I started cutting them open to make a neat little seed tray. They’re quite deep, you can prick holes in the bottom (or not) and keep the flap on as a cool reflector or lid while the seeds are germinating. Good for mustard and cress experiments too, cos you can fit quite a few of these babies on your windowsills (if you had any flipping windowsills).
The aim is to get the magic rooting magicky ingredients (erm…rooting hormones?) out of the willow branches and infused into the water, so then we can use the water to stick other cuttings in and, hopefully, get them to root.
