I decided to put the tiny seedlings into paper towel tubes but needed something to hold the dirt from spilling out the bottom.
This brown paper packing paper was perfect. A torn off piece wrapped around the tube and tied with string.
Since the tubes are so small, they plants need to be misted a few times a day. I didn’t have any pebbles so I used some sea glass and set them in a flat dish until I deliver them.
It’s starting to get really warm here, so these guys will need to be gifted and planted soon. The nice thing about this packaging is that they can just be planted as is. The tube, wrapping and string will all eventually compost. The paper is fairly thin and should break apart quickly. The tube will take longer but will protect the little roots until it does.
Hooray for going green.
Thanks for visiting my little corner of the creative world.
