Make your own seedling pots from old newspapers. This simple kit allows you to make a limitless supply of biodegradable pots for seeds, seedlings and young plants. Makes 3 different pot sizes: 3cm, 4.75cm and 6cm in diameter.
Grow your own flower garden with this seed kit. Start the seeds off in a tray, then use the metal widger (which is the best tool I’ve found for pricking out) to divide the seedlings and pot on into the paper pots.
Once the seedlings have grown on and there’s no sign of frosts, you can plant them straight into your garden (or container). Thereby minimising any root disturbance.
