These English oak paper potters are made in the basement of an old stone mill in Lancaster England. Chris Fox sources the finest hardwoods from England’s Lake district for garden products that will last decades.
The ‘long’ potter is designed to make two sizes of pots by loading the paper to different levels of the body. The longest is about the size of a toilet-roll and ideally suitable for long rooted beans, sweet-peas and corn.
Making your own seed starting pots is a great way to recycle paper products in your home. Set comes with instructions.
Although originally trained as an engineer, I’ve always worked with wood and have been running my own furniture-making and woodturning business for a number of years.
I have a workshop in the basement of an old stone building in NW Lancashire, which is towards the top left hand corner of England.
Much of my timber is locally sourced, while the oak for larger pieces are Forest Stewardship Certified European stock.
