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.
