Recycled paper seedling trays

When planting new plants put a layer of wet newspapers down and then cover with mulch to prevent weeds from growing. Make sure the newspapers overlap and the layer of mulch is thick enough (at least ~3 inches). Also, water regularly!

Newspaper weeds away! Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet the newspapers and put them in layers around the plants overlapping as you go. Cover the newspapers with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet season yet?)

Good to know what these look like. I always forget :/

Smother weeds and prevent new ones from growing by covering them with old newspapers. A thick layer of newspaper will keep sunlight from reaching weed seeds, so they can’t sprout. Wet the soil first, and then lay your newspaper down, wetting it thoroughly again before covering with mulch. This is a great way to recycle, and as a bonus, you’ll encourage earth worms to come and stay.
