Well I certainly can't speak for Josh's situation, but I can say that a couple of my peat pots had become weak and tore a bit so I doubled up to keep the planting contained until transplant time... I love the peat pots but they do soak up more water making it a little tricky (it's easy to over compensate and thus, overwater). Hope this info helps a little anyway!

Dont really like them...too hard to keep them wet....so after seeing them doubled up ..I put a little vermiculite in the bottom one and another on top with a seedling in it....am trying sunflowers mammoth today...and see if moisture holds better....

I make a lot of my own out of old newspapers but after sprouting and getting so wet..they dont look so good....taking the bottom tape off ...they plant well.....but I would like to sell lil plants at my garden club to help with the treasury .....Ruth

How do you make pots out of newspaper? That is sooo awesome, I am a wanna be extreme couponer so I always have lots of newspapers, I just take them to the dump to be recycled. Would love to know how you make them!!!!

I am not computer savy and cant highlight and quote....so this answer is to Cheyannarach in South Dakota.....

Reference newspaper pots.....If I remember right I saw it on a video....Garden Girl.com.....she folded 4 sheets of newspaper folded lengthwise around a small tomato sauce can halfway up from the bottom....folded up the excess on the bottom and taped it with masking tape....I write on the masking tape on the side what the seed is....hopefully we can find the video.....I am sure you got an excess of newspapers but this is a way of using some to good use.....Ruth
