I attended a little workshop sponsored by the West Bloomington Revitalization Partnership over the weekend
A local master gardener, Charlotte Talkington — taught an enthusiastic group
how to make these nifty seed/plant starter pots out of newspaper.
What a delight!!
Pots out of newspaper foster a way to use up old newspapers, they may be planted directly into the soil, the newspaper naturally decomposes, earthworms love them and the roots of the plant are not disturbed.
Each of us walked out with a newspaper pot complete with soil and a precious coleus plant from Charlotte’s epic collection. ( Charlotte nurtures 1000 coleus plants each season! )
PLUS we all got pea seeds and seed packets donated from a local nursery.
