Seed tape is easy to make. YOU get to choose the varieties you plant when you make your own tapes. It's way cheaper than the commercial tapes. And best..... You get to handle tiny seeds indoors where it's warm and out of the wind.
Also..... if you accidentally pick up the wrong end of the packet, the seeds don't vanish into damp soil. This can be a BIG plus. I dumped them twice in the kitchen while making this ible.
This is a little different than DebH57's excellent Make Your Own Seed Tapes of 2009 - which I found after making this ible.
I've had problems in the past using paper napkins. That paper was too strong, and the roots became trapped. Hence the single ply TP. I'm also working with super tiny seeds that I want to keep as dry as possible before planting them outside. Glue-sticks are non-toxic, (but probably not organic) and introduce less moisture to the process.
Step 1: What You Need
Glue-stick - non-toxic, please
TP of the thinnest one-ply possible (ends of rolls are best - easiest to cut with scissors)
Scissors to cut the rolls in half
A yardstick or measurements on paper
