Re: Recycling plastic pots

Thanks Jim, that's a very useful map, Wisley is the only place near me that is part of the scheme. Until maybe last year at least three other Garden Centres locally had pot recycling bins, but all have vanished. It's a shame, such a good way of reusing (= recycling) plastic pots.
