Seed Tape Helps You Lay Out The Perfect Garden

Did you know instead of sticking seeds individually into the ground or haphazardly throwing them into the earth you can lay them out on toilet paper to plant them right where you want them? Well, yes you can!

Besides being an easy way to plant tiny seeds that are a pain to sow individually, you can use this technique to create arrangements in container gardens. All you need for your seed tape project is toilet paper, some glue, tweezers, and toilet paper rolls. You glue the seeds onto the toilet paper (at the distances suggested by the seed packet directions), wait for the glue to dry, then roll the paper up on the cardboard roll.

Once the seeds are ready to plant, just unroll the seed tape onto your soil surface, cover to the depth of soil recommended, and water. Easy peasy.

    I don't really see how this saves time. Surely gluing each seed individually to the toilet paper is just as time consuming as individually placing each seed in the ground, if not more!

    It is super easy and totally saves time. I did it with napkins and watched the news while I worked AFTER DARK. Then the next day I just had to stick them in my planter boxes. I have two kids so being able to do things after dark and while multitasking totally saves me daylight time! Mine are coming up beautifully and perfectly spaced. Radishes, beets and carrots. They popped up in such perfect spacing they look like they are out of a magazine!

    Well this won't help when I'm trying to sow the lawn. Damn birds keeps eating the seeds

    I need a site that tells me when and what to plant... what pests to look out for... and most of all... when to pick em... most suitable focus on the basics... corn pumpkin, tomoatoes. ect...
