Take a cotton ball sized wad (not as dense, though). It should pull through the hole and be snug as you are pulling. Work it between your fingers until you get the end going into the hole smooth, press up against the hole and pull through with the other hand. :thumbup:

I heard there's a problem with that. Like if you want to innoculate through the poly-fill it usually falls through the whole.
I'm going to do the same thing though, just innoculating before I put the polyfill in the holes.

Really? I never had a prob with inoculating right through the polyfil (did it just an hour or so ago :smile:). If it fights you a bit when you are pulling it through, you will be fine.

Too big of a hole + not enough polyfil = what you described.

I should add that I use a 7/32 drill bit for the hole.

just make sure you have to tug the polyfill thru a bit...you want it nice and snug.
