~~PROJECT FRIDAY~~PAPER TOWEL TUBE PEAT POTS

Today is Project Friday hosted by Roemarie at Sugar Plum Cottage, http://sugarplumcottage.blogspot.com/ Be sure to go and visit her for the list of all participants and their projects Today I'm showing you how to make peat pots for your seeds out of paper towel tubes. Cut the tubes into 3 inch sizes.
Then cut 4 equal slits around the bottom of the tube.

Fold the slits to make the bottom enclosure of the peat pots.





Then fill them with your starter soil and plant your seeds. Place the peat pots into a used plastic butter bowel to hold until time for planting. This will also help when you water your peat pots so that the water does not flow out every where. Then when your seedlings have sprouted you can plant the whole peat pot into the ground.
Hope you try this project.
Hugs :)

Hi Katherine, I'm always looking on how to re-use those paper rolls. I always hate just throwing them away. I guess you could say this is sort of going Green.

Hugs :)

I love this Irma, it is a lot better than buying all those peat pots. I just noticed your post last PF, the napkin is precious. I'll have to remember how to make the bunny. Thank you for joining me this week. Hugs, Rosemarie
