If you’re looking for a cheap way to start your seedlings and you have a bunch of newspaper laying around, try combining them both.
Here’s a little how-to tutorial that may help recycle the paper plus be a useful seed starting pot.
These little seed pots could be useful for planting all your vegetable seeds, e.g. beans, cucumbers, beetroots, pumpkins etc, in advance and then plant them into the ground as they being to grow. The newspaper will eventually break down and allow the roots to penetrate the soil, plus you’ve had a head start on next season’s vegetables.
One extra tip: Make sure you place the newspaper pots on a tray as they will begin to break down from the continued moisture. An easy way to plant them straight into the ground would be to use a bulb planter to clasp around the whole pot.
