Paper Tube to Mark Seedlings

When you want to grow a small amount of seeds, and know exactly where you've planted them, use a toilet paper tube.

Holding the cardboard tube upright, take your scissors and cut upwards about 1 1/2 inches all around the bottom of the roll. You will need to have the strips wide enough to push all of them towards each other to seal off the bottom.


You can also using a small tomato paste can and push newspaper down into the empty can. Cut the paper around the top of the can so it won't hang over the edges. then pop it out of the can and you have another holder.

Just dig holes in the ground, put your growing medium in the container, add the seeds, then I use a plastic knife or something to identify what seeds they are.

Hope you have as much fun as I do making these.
