It's been 40 days since I planted my January and February wildflower seed-embedded desk calendar pages. The newspaper pots that I transplanted the seedlings into have not prematurely disintegrated. In fact...
The plants are thriving. The two layers of newspaper is adequate to maintain the pot's shape but still allow roots to penetrate. Do you see the roots poking out? Amazing... one tiny seed... 40 days ago... purely amazing.
The wildflowers are doing so well that it is time to transplant into larger quarters... a shortened half-gallon milk carton. I set the entire newspaper pot into the soil so as not to disturb the roots. When the garden soil has warmed sufficiently, I'll cut away the milk carton's sides to plant it in its permanent home.
