A community gardens project officer, some how, found me and asked me to make 24 of this mould for him. I saw it for the first time and found it so interested that I liked to share this project with you gardners. It is easy to make and can be made of any kind of timber.
The title says it all. The mould is made of two pieces, M & F as in pic 1 & 2, and you need a piece of newspaper around 30cm long and 8cm wide for each cup, as in pic 3. Wrap the paper around M leaving about 2 – 3 cm in the bottom and then tuck the excess to the centre as in pic 4 and twist M & F against each other as in pic 5 and the cup will be ready for seedling as in pic 6.
The officer and his students will fill the paper cup with soil and a seed or two and when it is ready they will plant it altogether in the ground, as easy as that.
It is unpaid service job for me.
HAPPY GARDENING !
