Origami Seed Starter Pots

Here is a fun eco-friendly activity for you, your family, students, and gardeners of all ages to try.  Convert old newspapers into containers for starting plants from seeds.  You can save money, be kind to the environment and use your crafting skills. 

Once the pots are complete, fill the pots with a well-drained potting mix or seed starting mix and set in a shallow container.  Then simply plant hardened off transplants in the garden, pot and all, once the danger of frost has passed  The newspaper pot will decompose allowing the plant’s roots to explore the surrounding soil.  This reduces transplant shock and the hassle of managing plastic pots.
