How to Make a Paper Pot

We love our newspaper pots — they are a really easy way to germinate lots of seeds.

You will need:

One sheet of newspaper per pot

A glass or a jam jar

1Fold your newspaper in half lengthways.
2Place the glass on the non-fold end with a quarter of the glass base off the edge of the newspaper.
3Roll the newspaper around the glass — make sure this is not too tight or the glass will be stuck.
4Push the end of the newspaper inside the glass and press down firmly.
5Remove the glass then put it base end first into the pot and press down firmly.
6Remove the glass and you will have a pot ready to plant your seeds.
