I have been wanting to make pots for growing seeds for ages. I came across this seed pot maker in Sainsbury’s and thought I would share with you as today I spotted it reduced to just £1.50. Snap it up quick!
It’s a pretty simple idea – you get a block to wrap the newspaper around and then a base that you push the newspaper into to form a base:
The instructions suggest you use strips of newspaper 9cm wide and 58cm long, but after a bit of experimenting, I’ve discovered that the pots work just as well using shorter strips from magazine pages, which allow you to pick some fun patterns for your pots.
Now to plant some seeds… happy growing!
