DIY Seed Starter

Last year I posted my toilet paper diy seed starter and although it works, I have found that the paper method works much better.  I either use paper bags like I did here or like the one I'm showing you today.  I don't suggest using this particular method if you're starting forty different seeds inside because it can be time consuming, but if you are planting just a few flowers or herbs, then this method will work great.   

And just to show you that it does work, I included a picture above that shows my little bean has sprouted. :)

What you need:

leftover newspaper

twine

scissors

small glass jar (about two inches in diameter)

Instructions:

Take your newspaper and begin folding sections.  The width should be about 2-3 inches wide.

Once you're finished with folding, wrap your paper around the end of the glass and secure with the twine.  Pull the paper off the glass and begin folding the paper inward to form the bottom that will hold the dirt.  **Tip:  I cut the paper to make it easier to fold it inward. 

Viola!  Just add some dirt, water, seeds and your done!
