With the current concerns over the build-up of plastics in the environment, many gardeners are looking for replacements for plastic pots to start off their seeds and grow on young plants. Making your own from otherwise would-be recycled newspapers is the perfect alternative. And the Paper Pot Maker ensures this is an easy process.
All you do is wrap a strip of newspaper around the pot former, tuck in the bottom ends, firm in place with the bottom section and remove the pot former. Voila, an endless supply – providing you have enough newspapers! – of your own sturdy but biodegradable pots for seeds, seedlings and young plants.
The Paper Pot Maker makes three different pot sizes – 3cm (1¼in), 4.75cm (2in) and 6cm (2½in) in diameter – and is made from FSC-certified beech wood.
