    Comments about Paper Pot Maker:

    I couldn't believe how easy it was to use. The paper pot holds up even though the pot is soaked with watering. I grew pepper and tomato seeds in the pots on my windowsill and then just transplanted the whole thing when the plants got big enough to put outside. The roots will grow through the paper as the plant gets bigger. Saves money on starting seeds and the plant doesn't shock when transplanting as you don't disturb the roots.

      Comments about Paper Pot Maker:

      I bought this for a friend who teaches gardening classes to children, as well as having her own garden. This was the perfect gift (which she loved) because the kids can now be involved from the very beginning of the project until the end! As she's older, it's easy for her to use with her hands.

          This little seed maker was a great stocking stuffer. We used it in February for starting the seedlings and planted as soon as the ground warmed. The newspapaer seedlings did well.

                I wasn't sure about this actually creating usable paper pots for my greenhouse. So I was pleased to learn how easy it is to use and how perfectly the pots are formed.

                    This is great to use if you have had a stroke. I have had them and I have gone and tried this along with several others and this is so cheap and it is absolutley amazing. This is wonderful!!

                    This only thing I would change is the sizes availabe. I would ad one abotu 3 or 4 inches in diameter.

                      Initially I had a hard time getting the "pot" off the form, but it got easier with practice, and using paper was a LOT cheaper than buying compostable pots.
