Going to the nursery
to buy starter plants
is super easy, but doesn't really fulfill our quest to "go green". After all, someone else did the hard work of planting those seeds, so all we have to do is buy the potted plant. Being a busy person myself, I can understand why even the most avid gardener
would slip into a nursery undercover and unnoticed to buy starter plants they didn't have time to start themselves.
I have the seeds
, but haven't started my own pots yet. I do believe I will be planting the seeds this weekend, thanks to a tutorial on newspaper seed starter pots
. The tutorial shows us through step by step pictures and wonderfully worded instructions exactly how to rip and fold a sheet of newspaper
so that it becomes a beautiful little seed starter pot.
The tutorial takes my love of origami
and my love of gardening and puts it together in one neat little package, er, pot. With the neat origami pot, I can conveniently save a trip to the nursery. Tell us in the comments how you start your seed pots
