Learn how to make your own seedling pots to jump start your gardening! An easy and economical way to start seeds for your garden!
Making your own seedling pots is a great afternoon activity for the entire family and a wonderful way to get children excited about gardening. With a stack of newspapers, a can or water bottle, and a few minutes, you’ll be ready to add your potting soil and seeds before you know it.
Start with a stack of newspapers. Little Buddy chose to start with the comics, of course. He had to spend a few minutes reading them again before we started making our pots.
Tear the paper into long strips.
Place your bottle about 3/4 of the width of the paper strip.
Begin folding the end of the paper onto the bottom of the bottle.
Tuck the final pointed corner underneath the other folds for a tight finish.
Fill with your favorite potting soil, plant your seeds according to package directions, and be ready to enjoy your seedlings knowing you’ve not invested a ton of money in seedling pots!
