Sowing for Spring

Posted on

SowingLast weekend we planted seeds for both our future herb garden, and our summer veggies.

As you can probably gather from this pic, we have been collecting toilet rolls for several months to sow our seeds in. This way, we will be able to plant our seedlings and their protective toilet roll casing directly into the garden, thereby avoiding transplant shock.

We also bought some biodegradable pots from Bunnings to ensure we had enough for all our seeds

Now we’re just waiting for the seedlings to appear!

    We also make newspaper pots – wrap it around a glass to make a pot shape, then fold one end over to make a loose base. Not as sturdy as the cardboard ones you used, but last long enough for you to transfer to final destination and then rot away quickly

      That’s a great idea too! I actually came across a wooden device in a catalogue recently that “tamps down” newspaper to make a sturdier pot. So many ways of saving the environment… 😉
