Toilet Paper Tube Seedling Pots lalala... Gold Post Medal for All Time! 899 Posts March 30, 2013 Every household has plenty of tp tubes. They make great seedling pots, so why not reuse some of them instead of recycling them. :) Supplies: toilet paper tubes scissors
Steps: Cut the TP tube in half. Then make 4 cuts that are approx. 1/2 in., creating 4 flaps of equal size.
Fold one flap inward, then working clockwise, fold the other flaps down. Tuck the corner of the last flap under the corner of the first flap. (Like when you are closing a cardboard box.)
Turn them over and gently press them down on a flat surface so make the bottoms flat, so that they will stay upright.
Turn them over, fill with soil, and plant your seeds. Once the seeds have sprouted and are ready to go into the ground, just plant them with the pot. The cardboard will disintegrate in the soil.

Toilet paper tubes make excellent biodegradable plant pots for seedlings. All you need are the tubes and a pair of scissors. Make four cuts about an inch long at one end and fold them in.
There should be a small hole for drainage. Fill with compost and sow seeds or plant a seedling.

I had been saving all sorts of toilet paper rolls - I think mainly it was a habit from when we used to have a fireplace. This spring when I decided to start my seedlings I realized I could make life a lot easier for myself if I just started the seeds in the toilet paper rolls!

Beans and peas do not like their roots disturbed, and may not do well when transplanting them. Use an empty toilette paper roll to plant.
When you are ready to plant in the ground keep them in the cardboard. It will disintegrate on its own.
