Tool to make seedling pots from strips of old news­pa­per. Made from FSC-cer­ti­fied wood. Makes two sizes of pots: 2in tall x

13⁄4in wide (5.5x4.5cm) and 23⁄4x21⁄4in

(7x5.5cm). Plant with­out re­mov­ing pot when roots grow through the sides.

Per­for­mance

Wrap strips of old news­pa­per around the wooden for­mer and press onto the base. It’s fun and a real hands-on re­cy­cling ex­pe­ri­ence, but it takes time. They work well but need care in han­dling. When damp or they can fall apart – pack them onto a seed tray once sown/planted. Ideal for sow­ing big seeds or grow­ing on seedlings to plant out – pot and all.

Value

Top points for re­cy­cling news­pa­per, and great value as you could make hun­dreds of pots, but they have no long-term or or­na­men­tal value.
