newsprint plant pots

I wanted to show you another alternative to plastic plant pots (although I also use those over and over again).

This is a sweet little tool that I purchased last year and works well for small seedlings. The seedlings can be directly planted into the ground in the paper which means that their roots won’t be disturbed. I have also seen larger ones made using a wine bottle. My one hint would be not to roll the paper too tightly around the base because it makes it easier to take off if it is slightly loose… 

Happy planting!
