I'm currently planning my first organic soil grow. This will be my fourth grow, all the previous being in coco. Thus far I've used plastic basket weave waste paper baskets lined with coco matting as containers, to maintain good drainage. My question being, would these be suitable for soil growing too. They hold about 35L.

Any help appreciated.

Time to grow old disgracefully.

@toploader Heyo, Do these containers have drainage holes?, If not they should have. Other than that should be fine, some growers worry about the type of plastic that they grow in because cannabis has the ability to absorb toxins from the roots...something to think about

Yes they have quite large holes. Actually was looking at pond baskets too, you know, the one's for submerging aquatic plants in. The coco matting is fairly cheap, about £30 for a 1mx8m roll.

They'll be fine as long as they hold soil and have drainage
