Using Seed Tapes

Cut strips of newspaper and 'glue' seeds at the correct distance apart using a mixture of flour and water. Once dry, plant directly in your garden and cover with soil and water. Great for small seeds like carrots and lettuce. Kids love it!

Bags of potting soil, poke holes in the bottom for drainage. Lay on flat surface that doesn't get too hot. Elevating them keeps the rabbits from nibbling. Cut the top out leaving about a 4" border to contain the dirt. Sprinkle seeds and keep moist. Perfect for lettuce, spinach and radishes. (or starting larger seedling)

Best seed tape ever! Yup you guessed it toilet paper! Planting tiny seeds is easy with this simple gardening trick!
