DIY Seed Tape

Instead of buying  expensive  prepared seed tape from the nursery for your veggie seeds, make your own. Use a length of unbleached toilet paper (one roll makes a lot of seed tape) and drizzle a thin line of honey about an inch inside the long edge. Space the seeds according to the directions on the packet by dropping them into the line of honey. Fold the toilet paper over so it sticks to the honey and covers the seeds.  Plant the paper directly into the soil as per the instructions and water well. This works just like the pre-prepared seed tapes, for a fraction of the cost and no more wasting all those tiny seeds.

  1. The tip above is BRILLIANT! Looking at my carrot seeds earlier today and this method is brilliant especially for these.

    Thanks,
