Seed Pot Maker


Something Grows in the Fold

Fold together your love of recycling and gardening with this clever tool--an acorn-topped wooden dowel designed to create biodegradable pots for seeds, seedlings and young plants. All you need is some old newspaper and you can craft any number of plant pots for all your planting needs. Simply cut dry newspaper into strips, fold in the excess paper underneath, press the folded end onto the base and gently twist to shape the pot. Remove your paper pot, fill with dirt and compost, and you're ready to sow seeds or nurture a seedling! After all, from little acorns DO mighty oaks grow. Made in China.

Made from
beech wood
6.5" H x 3" dia.
To clean, wipe with moist cloth.

Gift for green thumb daycare lady


Bought for avid gardner/daycare lady. PERFECT! Even the kids can use it and the verbiage seemed fit.

Nice looking seed pot maker


Unfortunately this comes without instructions, so the recipient had to watch videos online to see how to use the seed pot maker. Otherwise it seems to work well, it looks good, and it's a way for us to make our own pots while recycling. It's also a touch overpriced.



Great way to make my own paper pots!


I've tried using a small glass to make my own paper pots and ended up with sore wrists. After receiving this product, I had a number of pots made, almost without even having to think about it. I am SO glad that I got it!

My son loves this because it is a natural way to start seeds. It also helps to prevent transplant shock. Wonderful product!!

Fantastic, love it


This is a terrific little tool. I've used another version with a wider end for the palm of the hand, and this one is much more comfortable. When I make newspaper pots, I make a thousand at a time, so comfort is important! I will be ordering a few more of these for gardening friends.

Every Gardener Needs This!!!!


I found three different makers for this type of product when searching online. I ended up purchasing this style because of the heirloom quality. This works so amazingly well and is super easy to use. We do not get the newspaper - however, we used a bunch of brown paper bags and they worked great!! Our two-year old was able to fill these with seed starter soil - and the brown paper bag made the pot sturdy - but not as thick as peat pots. Roots were able to break through easily. This would make a great gift for friends and family! You could put it in a brown paper bag with some seeds and a great pot to transplant to as a housewarming gift :-)
