Seed Tape

Trying out a little DIY project today. I’m hoping those tiny little seeds will stay more uniform when planted this way. I created seed tapes for lettuce, spinach, beets, cilantro, basil, and parsley seeds.

This was really quite easy. I created the tape from toilet tissue in 2′-3′ lengths, and cut down the center. I separated the paper so it was only one ply. Next I made the “glue” to hold the seeds; 1 teaspoon of flour combined with 1 tablespoon water. I placed a tiny drop of “glue” every so many inches – depending upon how far the spacing was on the particular package. Then 1-2 seeds were placed on the “glue”. Once dry, I rolled them up and placed back into seed packets.
