Learn how to make your own plant pots from recycled newspapers. They're cheap to make and much better for the environment than plastic.
Newspaper pots are brilliant for starting off your seeds such as sunflowers, tomatoes or peas, or for potting on young seedlings.
Take your sheet of newspaper and fold it almost in half lengthways, leaving a strip about 3cm in width at the top.
Fold that strip down, like folding down the top of an envelope.
Place your jar/can at the bottom of your newspaper with the hole facing up.
Make sure the jar/can is hanging over the paper a bit at the bottom as this will help you to remove it later.
Roll your paper nice and snugly around the jar/can.
When you have finished rolling, tuck the paper into the hole at the top of your jar/can.
Flip your jar/can upside down and press down onto it to create a nice seal for the bottom of your pot.
Remove the jar/can and voilà!
Make as many pots as you need and fill them up!
Put your pots into a tray before adding compost. The newspaper can get a bit soggy so this will make them easier to move.
