Fun, Eco, and sustainable


from Wells Branch-Austin, Texas

Verified Reviewer


  • Buy it only once
  • Reuseable and sustainable
  • Super easy


  • Want a larger one
  • Warps if left wet

Best Uses

    I wasn't sure this would work, but I was planting 60+ seeds and didn't want to buy all the little peat starters. I wanted something a bit bigger. This did the trick. Very easy to use. It took 2 or 3 trys to get my technique down...but then I was a pot making machine. Only problem was I left it on the garden bench and it rained. It is now warped and I need to get a new one. But...I know where to get it!

    Neat Tool


    from Connecticut

    Verified Reviewer


    • Compact
    • Simple


      Best Uses

        It is incredibly easy to use. First, you cut strips of paper into 3.5" x 10" strips, wrap the strip length-wise around the stamp, fold the bottom edge of the paper under the stamp and then press into the base. Voila! A perfectly sized seedling pot.

        It took me about 30 minutes to fill 5 trays with little paper pots which was worth it due to the amount of money I'll save over the years. You can also transfer the little pots directly into the garden once you're ready to plant them outside.

        It takes a little longer to fill with soil so if you're going for a world record in speed gardening, this probably isn't the tool for you.
