The Potmaker is a tool to turn strips of old newspaper into biodegradable pots for seedlings and cuttings. With this tool you will have an endless supply of starter pots!

Pots are sturdy and remain intact even as the young plants grow and roots penetrate the newspaper. When plants are ready to transplant, just plant the pots and all into your garden. The newspaper will naturally decompose in the ground.

Features & Benefits:

  • Make your own biodegradable plant pots from newspaper
  • Reduces need for plastic pots and flats
  • Fun, easy way to recycle old newspapers
  • Excellent gift for gardeners
  • Made in Canada from solid maple

How To Use:

The Potmaker consists of two parts: the press and the form. Simply roll a strip of newspaper around the press, tuck the ends of the newspaper under the press, and push into the form with a twist of the wrist. The 2 ¼ inch pot will slip off the press, ready to be filled with soil and plants!

    • Won't they fall apart when watering (before they are ready to be planted)?
    • The pots made using the Potmaker will hold up to watering as the seedlings develop. If you were to overwater the pots you would see the water saturation on the paper surface of the pots, and you'll know to reduce watering. It would take repeated over-watering to saturate the pots to the point of their coming apart.
