i have more than a few nursery beds in my propagation area near the greenhouse. i used them this last fall to start 10000 onions and 5000 leeks. in a very small space of 4x8'. i use them to root tons of cuttings, one of them is full of peach pits from last fall, they should be sprouting soon. i really like to use them for cuttings of perennial plants. these beds reduce the bill of me buying plants from a nursery 100 times over.
