    I missed this yesterday and threw out shredded paper in recycle. Learned something new and regret messing up the recycle system.

    Here is what I use to start seedlings for the garden.

    half for most seedlings, or leave them whole for plants that need more root space – peas, corn, and tomatoes for instance. Alternatively, cut down paper towel tubes to the desired length.
    Making a toilet paper tube seed pot is even easier than making a newspaper pot!
    1. Cut four equally-spaced inch-long slits into one end of the toilet paper tube.
    2. Fold the flaps down, alternating the tucks to create a strong interlocking base.
    3. Fill with potting soil, and sow your seeds into it.
    Set the tubes in trays so that they don’t fall apart as the cardboard softens. As the seedlings grow, their roots will help hold the potting soil together. You can also group pots together using string or rubber bands.
    Cardboard tubes rot down more slowly than newspaper, but roots will find their own way out of the pot eventually. However, you can peel off the cardboard before planting if you prefer – it peels away very easily when wet.
