Start Your Garden Indoors with DIY Seed Pots!
I received these seed pots and we were excited to decorate them. I gave the boys some markers, eco-friendly glue, googly eyes, tissue paper, eggshells, and old cooked spaghetti noodles, just for fun. I was curious as to what they would come up with. (The googly eyes and other items that aren’t biodegradable should be removed before planting.)
We had a blast decorating the biodegradable seed pots. The Captain tried to make a pot that looked like Daddy. We made a smiley face out of eggshells that we had put in the compost bucket. We used the cooked spaghetti noodles to spell “BP” for bell pepper. D made a four-eyed monster that he was quite proud of:
After we were done decorating, we filled the pots with potting soil and planted a few seeds in each. We planted herbs, tomatoes, and bell peppers, then wrote on the back of the seed pots the name of the type of seed that was planted in them, so we wouldn’t forget.
These DIY Watch It Grow Medium Seed Pots can be purchased at Amazon . They are made of biodegradable peat fiber, so you can plant them right into the garden without worrying about disrupting the roots. As I noted before, however, you should remove all plastic decorations before planting them, although most fall off with watering.
Happy Spring and Happy Earth Day, too!
