Earth Day is comin’ up fast, and just a week and a half
later is Mother’s Day. Pay your respects to Mother Nature and craft a gift for
your own mama with this fab how-to from carolynshomework.blogspot.com.
These biodegradable seedling pots will nurture flowers and
herbs before they’re ready to be transplanted into the ground, making it a
totally perfect belated prezzie for the Earth, or an early gift for a mom who
loves to garden or cook. Wanna know the best thing? You probably have most of the
necessary materials in your house already.
What you’ll need:
2 paper towel rolls
What you’ll do:
1. Cut the paper towel rolls into four equal pieces.
2. Place in the planting tray on top of a layer of pebbles,
fill with soil and add seeds.
3. Wrap and tie a piece of twine around each pot to keep the
tube from unraveling when you water your seedlings. You can also put moss
around each tube to keep them from wiggling around.
4. When the seedlings are big enough to be transferred to
the ground, you’ll need to remove the twine, but because the cardboard paper
towel roll is biodegradable, you can transfer your baby plants into the soil
and leave them inside their tube.
