How to Use the Paper Pot Maker

Paper pot from the Paper Pot Maker

The Paper Pot Maker is a simple, time-tested tool that transforms ordinary newspaper into a limitless supply of 3-inch pots, perfect for starting your seeds.

  1. Simply wrap a strip of newspaper around the solid wood press
  2. Fold it under, and push it into the base.

It only takes a few seconds and you can get several pots from one newspaper page. Plain, non-laminated newspaper (not that shiny magazine paper!) is biodegradable, and you can plant pot and all right into the ground, with no repotting necessary.
