We make and use 100s of these newspaper plant pots each year. I get the kids making them on mass in the springtime ready for the planting season. We place them in seeding trays which makes them easy to store and move.
These paper pots are suitable for use with all fruit, vegetables and flowering plants. As they are planted in the ground in the pot, it makes them especially useful for plants which don’t like root disturbance, such as beets and carrots, which allows you to start these off early indoors and get a head start on the growing season.
There are no issues with the ink in the newspaper these days and all newspapers are printed with a soy-based ink which is non-toxic.
I highly recommend you pick one up, it will last forever and save you a fortune. Additionally, it is a great way to recycle and use old newspapers.
