Newspaper Seedling Pots

Happy Monday everybody!



I've been hard at work, shredding newspaper and turning it into these seedling pots. I tend to grow all my seeds in these because it's much easier to transplant seedlings into the ground without disturbing the roots. You can literally just put the whole thing in the ground, and the newspaper biodegrades. If you're growing on a large scale, this method might not be so practical space-wise, but for me in my little patch it's ideal. In the past I have also used toilet roll tubes, but they don't always biodegrade as quickly and can affect the way the roots grow (depending on what it is you're growing).



Husband got me this paper pot maker for valentines day a few years ago, and I get good use out of it every year. It's very easy to use, you literally just cut newspaper up into strips, wrap it around the seed pot maker, and then use the base to smoosh it together. You can get them in lots of different sizes too, depending on what you're growing.

Fairly soonly I'll be able to start sowing some seeds (hurrah!), the first of which will be onions so I will be back with an update soon regarding that hopefully!

  4. While we as a whole can't help thinking about how the health care framework has arrived at what some allude to as an emergency stage. We should attempt to remove a portion of the feeling from the discussion by quickly looking at how health care in this nation developed and how that has shaped our reasoning and culture about health care. red light therapy
