Time is moving so fast, it’s nearly May already and my Basil was getting a tad crowded. I decided to pot them on into some paper pots which also gave me an excuse to use one of my birthday presents. My amazingly clever Dad made me a set of my very own wooden potting tools consisting of two circular tampers, two square tampers, a level tool and a special 4 squared block tamper for those small modular seed trays. I popped out into the back garden to test them out and they did not fail to impress me!
I am so happy with my little tamper set and they are beautifully made, he even finished them off with an antique brown wax which I just love. He made one circular tamper to specifically fit into the paper pots that I make and the other square tampers fit the standard module trays. The 4 squared block tamper and the level also have lovely little indented handles!
Handmade gifts after all, are simply the best and I will cherish them forever 🙂
