Ice cream cones


I saw on pentrest that several people recommended using ice cream comes to start seeds in and that they were completely bio degradable......

Anyone here try using them?

I gave up using peat pots and jiffy pots, they just were not working out for me, so I'm looking for something else to try...

Hey I've seen that on Pinterest, too ... and it sounded like an interesting thing to try ....
so I did a little more googling and when I found this blog entry (Pinterest Fail – Planting Seeds in Ice Cream Cones), I cracked up!
... because I just KNEW that this is exactly what would probably happen to me:
Quote :
"No matter how much or how little water was added to the cones they all started to collapse almost immediately. And after a few days they were starting to mold with no signs of sprouts so we had to toss them.

On the positive side our house did smell very much like an ice cream shop for a few days!"
If you decide to give it a try, please let us know how it goes.

Lol, I figured they would melt too (if the grandkids left them alone long enough!) And if they survived the water and grandkids, how long would it be before my dogs found them
