Making Newspaper Pots

Newspaper Pots

Just a quick note here to say that I found a wonderful resource for making newspaper pots! I've made a few to hold my courgette seedlings (when they come up) and I'll definitely be using these for beans and peas in the future.

I also ask my local florist to keep all their 10 cm plastic pots for me. They buy plants in bulk and re-pot them and usually just throw away the pots.

This way I get them for free and in return I bake something nice for the florist as a gift. It works pretty well as an exchange :)

That newspaperfolding is amazing, I have to try it in the morning just for the fun of it.
Do you have enough room on you windowsill???

Thanks Lien! Windowsills are becoming rare in our home. The living room windowsill is full, and I don't want to put them in the bedrooms! Luckily the weather is warm so the plants are outside. High on my list is a 'broeikas' so I can put the plants outside sooner :)
