Making seed tapes can save future planting and thinning time. Here’s how to go about it:
- Cut newspaper into 1″ wide strips.
- Glue your seeds to the paper using a paste of water and flour.
- Add a pinch of water-soluble fertilizer to each half cup of paste.
- Mark the appropriate seed spacing on the paper strip.
- After placing the seeds on the dots, completely cover each seed with a drop of paste.
- Let the tapes dry and store them in plastic bags.
- To plant, roll out your seed tapes, cover them lightly with soil, and water. The newspaper will eventually rot away as the seeds grow.
This a great idea, I can’t be on my knees to long this will help me git thinhsdonr. Thanks
Looking at your video: how to make a seeding tape
You mention to storage it in a plastic bag ok.
1 ) the wetness of the flour and water mixture doesn’t affect the seed
Or start the germination?
2) what about mold while in storage?
3 ) do you have some extra advice or tips about this subject?
Thanks in advance!
