I am really excited to share this time saving gardening tip with you today. I believe the last one that I shared was the diy handheld seed sower tool and before that the diy seed planting board. If you liked those posts then you are definitely going love these diy seed tapes.

What is a seed tape? It is just a fancy name for a long strip of biodegradable tape, that has seeds attached on it that you plant in your garden. It helps with plant spacing and saves time as well as energy as you do not have to worry about thinning out your seedlings once they are established.

Step By Step Instructions

Step 2.

How To Make Seed Tapes

Step 4.

How To Make Seed Tapes

Drop some glue on each of the marks on your
tape, and then a single seed on top of that.

Step 5.

Allow to dry overnight, and then store your tape.

Personally, if I had to choose between using toilet paper or paper towel for my tape, paper towel wins. If you are using paper towels its better to cut vertical shorter strips than longer ones which are a pain in the you know where, when it comes to storage. Store in a ziploc bag or box, in a cool and dry place.  If you want to use longer tapes, go ahead and watch the video below on tips on how to store those.
