Biodegradable pots made of newspaper Flower Pot GirlsFlower Pot Girls
Producing your own biodegradable pots made of newspaper is fairly simple, and a good alternative to purchased plant pots. This saves money, and represents a good way of reusing old newspapers or advertising letters. Children will also enjoy handcrafting these pots.Once the pots have been folded, they are filled with soil, and seed or young plants are transplanted into them.
Place the pots close together in rows within a flat saucer (e.g. an old casserole dish). In this way, the pots will remain moist when they are watered.
The advantage of such biodegradable pots made of newspaper is that roots can penetrate through the paper and be planted out including the paper.
1. If a biodegradable pot becomes too unstable through the addition of soil and water, place it into a new, slightly larger paper pot.
This time, it may be necessary to use two to three layers of newspaper from the start.
2. Remove the bottom of the paper pot on planting out your young plants as long as the roots have not yet broken through it.
What you need: Newspaper or recycled paper in A4 size.
