Use Paper Towels To Sow Small Flower Seeds

To sow all those fly away seeds, simply lay paper towels in your flower beds, wet, and then put seeds directly on the towel. Cover with soil and water as needed. Presto! You will have flowers popping up in no time and the paper will simply rot in the ground!

Wow, what a great idea. Now I will actually be able to see the tiny seeds I plant & maybe my rows will be straight! lol . Thanks for the tip. I was thinking of making "seed tape", but this seems like it will work just as well.
