DIY Seed Starter Compostable Newspaper Pots

Fall is here!! I have started our fall garden and am very excited to see how our veggies turn out. Last year I planted a few things here and there, however this year I have gone all out and planted so many different seeds. We have a herb garden that always has rosemary, basil, and a pepper plant in it. We also have two raised beds that I have planted new seeds in, including radishes, peppers, snow peas, red and green lettuce, sage, rosemary, spinach, onions, parsley, and garlic. We have seen sprouts of many of them and it has been less than two weeks.

This weekend we are adding a new vegetable garden for a bunch of seeds I planted in handmade starter pots. These pots are fairly simple to make and after I made about five of them they were very simple. I didn’t want to go out and spend more money on starter pots that I would have to just throw away. I found this great idea on craftingagreenworld.com using a single piece of newspaper to make a starter pot. I really like the way these look and they can be placed right in the garden once I am ready to plant them. The pots are compostable and very green.

Here is a video on how I made my starter pots.

I made maybe 20 of these pots and they have been working out really well. A couple of the seeds have already sprouted and I am hoping in a week or so they can be put in the garden.
